It appears that the only “language” the average Nigerian police understands is to attack or brutalise the citizen.
Men of the Nigerian police continued their penchant for assaulting the citizens as they fired tear gas peaceful #EndSARS right in front of the National Assembly complex.
Protesters were seen running away from the scene immediately the tear gas was fired at them and according to the convener of #RevolutionNow, Omoyele Sowore, five of the protesters sustained injuries and have been picked up by the police.
#EndSARS @PoliceNG brutally attacked us at the @nassnigeria this morning during an early morning action. Five protesters injured and then arrested! #Nobackingdown #RevolutionNow
Recall that the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Adamu recently, warned the police not to use their firearms unless they feel threatened.
However, it seems the Nigerian police officers have thrown caution into the wind for the umpteenth time.
