Soldiers take over streets of Abuja due to #EndSARS protests

The Nigerian Army has deployed soldiers to several parts of Abuja to curtail the violent outcome of the EndSARS protests.

Soldiers have been deployed to the streets of Abuja and stationed in strategic places to arrest the escalating #EndSARS protests.

According to media reports, this development is coming amid protests by Nigerians who have been demanding for an end to police brutality and comprehensive reforms of the Nigerian Police Force.

The protests, which have been ongoing for about 2 weeks across the country, have in some cases gone out of hand in Abuja with suspected hoodlums attacking #EndSARS protesters as well as pro-SARS groups.

The situation has led to clashes that left several persons injured with vehicles and other property damaged.

There have been reports that a protester, who was stabbed by one of such hoodlums, died in a hospital.
