Gridlock As #EndSARS Protest Continues In Rivers

 

 

 

More youths in Port Harcourt have joined the #EndSARS protest calling for an end to police brutality as well as demanding compensation for victims of such inhumane treatment by the operatives of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force.

This came after the youths held a candlelight procession on Friday night in honour of dead victims of police brutality.

One of the youths, who simply identified as K.O. Baba, said the procession was in honour of Chima Ikwunado, a mechanic who was tortured to death in the detention of the Eagle Crack unit of the Rivers State Police Command.

Also, he said it was to honour Daniel Ikeaguch, a musician shot dead by a policeman attached to a supermarket in Port Harcourt, and many other victims.

The youths on Saturday, however, called on the police authorities to compensate the families of the slain victims.

Numbering over a hundred, the youths gathered at Garrison at about 8am and marched on Aba Expressroad through UTC junction on Azikiwe Road.

The situation caused a gridlock on the Aba to the Azikiwe axis of Port Harcourt, as both private and commercial vehicles were on a standstill.
