Thugs armed with dangerous weapons were seen invading protest scenes in Lagos on Thursday morning.
In a witness video, thugs were seen wielding knives, machetes and clubs causing chaos, seeking to dispel protesters.
Young Nigerians have taken to the streets across the country to protest against the dreaded Special Anti-Theft Squad, a unit of the Nigerian Police, which has been accused of murder, extortion, rape and robbery.
Yesterday, protesters in Abuja and Lagos were also attacked by armed thugs, destroying cars and attacking protesters, who suffered varying degrees of injuries.
To update!!! on the Lagos protest.
Thugs can be seen getting out of a blue bus with knives and cutlasses. Tag and retweet so action can be taken. This is crazy. #NASSPayCutNow #AlausaProtest #EndSWAT Nigerian Army #Anonymous @jidesanwoolu #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeria pic.twitter.com/INRIjmMcuz
