Police in Lagos shoot tear gas at ENDSARS protesters


Tear gas has been used by the Nigerian Police Force to scatter EndSARS protesters who have gathered at

the Lekki Toll Gate in preparation for the second memorial parade for those killed in the toll gate shooting in October 2020.

The moment the cops fired tear gas into the air to scatter the demonstrators was caught on camera by the morning broadcast on Arise TV.

Oba Adeboye, the on-site reporter for the TV station, was being bullied by members of the police sent by the Lagos State Police Command. 

In the meantime, a policeman previously revealed intentions to detain anyone who approaches the Lekki tollgate during the #EndSARS procession.

We learned that the policeman, who requested anonymity, reportedly added, "As long as they don't stop, we shouldn't have an issue, because the consensus is that they don't stop. 

However, the instant someone stops, they will be taken away and put in the van.

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the police force was disbanded, and EndSARS was a decentralized series of large-scale rallies against police violence.

The now-disbanded outfit had a reputation for mistreating citizens of Nigeria. 

Men from the Nigerian Army allegedly opened fire on the unarmed demonstrators on October 20, 2020, at the Lekki Toll Gate, killing some of them.
