Thugs have burned down three police posts in the Orile-Iganmu suburb of Lagos. The police stations affected are Amukoko, Orile and Ajegunle police station. A police officer has also been reportedly lynched in Orile.
The triad attacks took place in the morning of Tuesday, October 20, 2020. This is following the RRS attack on Monday, October 19, of police officers on routine patrol who were attacked by street urchins and hooligans in the Yaba area of Lagos.
The protests which started out as peaceful has since gone violent with hoodlums perpetuating crimes as well as mounting blocks on major roads, obstructing free flow of traffic and disrupting business activities.
More than 20 people have been reported to have died consequent on the protest.
