Hoodlums who arrived in Lagos state government vehicles have attacked peaceful #EndSARS protesters at the Secretariat in Alausa, Ikeja.
Reports posted on Twitter said the hoodlums, wielding cudgels, were bussed to the secretariat in a BRT, raising suspicions they were agents of government.
Some of the protesters have been injured, according to Twitter posts.
One tweet said the protesters have been told to leave the Lagos State House of Assembly.
“So the government is so shameless that they hired thugs from Mushin to disrupt the peaceful protest at Alausa, then shamelessly used BRT buses to convey them. Baba Àlàdo or whatever his name is Will not die a peaceful death”, wrote Olaoluwa.
Here are some other tweets on the situation at Alausa:
