Written by MaryGift Sunday on October 20, 2020
Armed thugs are currently gathered around Eagle Square located in the Three Arms Zone in Abuja.
The youth, some without shirts and many others in black, were still holding sticks and walking round the square.
The situation has made armed policemen and soldiers deployed in the Supreme Court gate of the Presidential Villa, be on red alert.
Soldiers manning the Cenotaph directly opposite the Eagle Square are also on standby.
Up the road, tight security was also noticed around the Court of Appeal premises and the Police Headquarters.
Policemen on horses and inside Arrnoured Personnel Carrier are keeping watch around the police headquarters.
The #EndSARS protests rocking the country have continued for almost two weeks with youths calling for a lasting reform of the Nigeria Police Force.
All entreaties by politicians and business leaders for the youths to leave the streets failed as they block major highways, thereby, causing gridlock and affecting economic activities.
Suspected hoodlums had also hijacked the #EndSARS campaign in some cities, wreaked havoc on citizens and vandalised public assets in Lagos, Benin, Abuja, amongst other major cities.
