Some Lagos State protesters on Thursday, October 8, kept vigil at the entrance of the Lagos House of Assembly, Ikeja as they express their grievances against extortion and brutality by Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
According to reports, the protesters built tents at the entrance of the Assembly because their homes are no longer safe from SARS.
However, security operatives later dismantled the tents and attempted to disperse protesters.
About 11.30pm, the streetlights providing illumination to the protesters were switched off, causing scare that the young protesters may be attacked.
Popular comedian, Debo Adebayo, known as Mr Macaroni, who also joined the protesters, lamented the actions of FSAR operatives.
He said, “To be here is not because we don’t have a home. It is because we are scared that even when at home, bullets can find their ways into our heads. So, we want the government to step in and step in now
