Lekki military killings backlash: Buildings, properties raged down by protesters in Lagos, Abuja [List]
In Lagos, there was backlash of protesters mainly youths who defied curfew imposed by the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, setting ablaze several private and public buildings.
The Nigeria military had on Tuesday evening invaded the venue of protesters at the tollgate of Lekki part of Lagos, where they carry out sporadic shootings leading to killing of scores, while several others sustained gunshot injuries.
The attack on peaceful protesters received wide condemnation throughout the world with prominent nationals of various countries speaking against the killing by soldiers.
Among those who vented anger was Joe Biden, an American Democratic presidential nominee in November election, cautioning President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to stop killing protesters.
Moreso, prominent Nigerians, Civil Society organizations have also woken up in utter condemnation of killing of innocent protesters.
However, protests that massively erupted in several States in Southwest and Southsouth including the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja was believed to have been infiltrated with Government sponsored hoodlums to discredit the campaign as bait for government to deploy security agents against them.
CAPITAL POST’s undercover correspondent who monitored activities of protesters in Abuja reports that they are well organised in their mode of operations with sophisticated electronic gadgets that captures any eventualities.
Protesters who have been saddled with the responsibility of filming their activities day and night have always being vigilante and at alert against the invasion of security agents who of course, works for government. It was as a result, they are able to capture security vehicles conveying hoodlums to venues of protests where they released pictures of security vans with them.
In Abuja, the seat of Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory, the EndSARS protesters have been peaceful, maintained peace till hoodlums infiltrated and began to wreck havoc on innocent business men and women. At Apo mechanic in Abuja suburb of the Municipal Area Council, hoodlums on Monday burnt car mart, burnt peoples automobiles worth millions of naira when protesters went there.
Eye witnesses in the Apo carnage attributed the act to ‘aboki people’, a loose word description of the downtrodden hausa Fulani who usually eke out a living without any serious means of livelihood. They were said to have been conveyed in security vehicles disguised as protesters to Apo.
Carcasses of burnt automobiles could be seen at Apo mechanic with owners always coming around to look with lamentation of what has become of this country. The situation was saddening, moreso, that Nigerian government neither made a statement nor take any step of empathy for the victims of attack.
A protester who was audio-recorded unknowingly to him at Millennium park on Monday, where they congregated before procession to the National Assembly disclosed in the course of discussion that “there have a Coordinator who promised to pay them”, the reason he and several others showed up.
