It appears that the #EndSARS protest which trembled the country for close to two weeks in mid-October is about to reignited by Nigerian youths after it was attacked by miscreants who were allegedly sponsored.
The #EndSARS tag returned to the trend list on Twitter both in Nigeria and the United States on Thursday evening after reports emerged that the Nigerian Police are seeking a court order to scrap all the #EndSARS judicial panel of inquiry in the country.
The Judicial Panels were set up by State Governors to investigate the allegations of police brutality, harassment, killings among other crimes committed by members of the now-defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
A Twitter user, with the display name, “Shortfuse” reported that a group of older women and some young men took to the streets of Yaba/Tejuosho area of Lagos with their EndSARS placards as they demand an end to police brutality as well as justice for the victims of police brutality.

Remember that this guy is still out there walking free.
Remember that bank accounts of protesters are still frozen.
Remember that innocent people died and no justice yet.

Mohammed Adamu of the @PoliceNG thought he could mess with the streets….because of the prevailing 'peace' of the grave yard
He mistook hibernation for the oppressor's conquest
