#ENDSARSNOW: Lagos Police Station Under Attack

#ENDSARSNOW: Lagos Police Station Under Attack

The Surulere Police Division anti-kidnapping unit is currently under attack by hoodlums.

AllNews gathered that at least three officers have been shot in the attack.

This is coming after a policeman reportedly shot at an #EndSARS protester.

In a phone conversation with TheCable, Muyiwa Adejobi, spokesman of the Lagos police command, said he was not aware of the killing of any protesters, adding that policemen were the ones who were attacked.

 Adejobi said “fully armed” protesters invaded a police formation in the area and shut three members of the disbanded unit.

He said the officers are currently receiving treatment at the intensive care unit of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH).

“Three policemen were shot today. I am not aware if protesters were shot. Those that were shot are policemen and they are in LASUTH now; they are at the intensive care unit. That is what I know,” he said.

“They are anti-kidnapping men and they were on mufti. I wouldn’t know if anyone was shot, perhaps the protesters because they are fully armed, they carry what policemen carry.

 “It happened in Surulere this afternoon. They went to our anti-kidnapping office to attack policemen there. So they broke into the office by damaging some of the windows and they broke into the cell before they were repelled. I just left the station as well.”

In another report, two ladies identified as Treasure Chiamaka and Felicia Okpara were brutalized by men of the Nigerian Police force 

The ladies were assaulted at the peaceful #EndSARS protest staged at Ojuelegba. They were dragged, beaten, and tortured in an unacceptable way.

However, lawyers are now on their way to the Area C police station to release the ladies.
