Hoodlums operating under the banner of Pro-SARS a pro-government group mainly from northern Nigeria, who are opposed to current protest against police brutality in Nigeria, attacked the #ENDSARS protesters near Jabi/Julius Berger by pass in Abuja.
According to one Anasu Umar who lost his brother in the process, in an interview granted to SRTV, Anasu said that, when the protest started on Wednesday, the protesters in their usual manners ordered vehicles off the road.
Then, the Jabi Motor Park Chairman, Nasiru Gode, contracted his brother and other hoodlums in the motor park, to go out with knives and sticks and attack the Abuja #EndSARS protesters and take over the street.
However, the protesters were able to repel the attackers and in the ensuing confusion three out of the group were killed.
Anasu gave the names of the dead as Mohammed, Sadiq(whom he identified as his brother) and Sani while Ali Sidi is currently lying down in the hospital critically injured.
Narrating how they died, he said that as they were approaching to attack the protesters, who were under the Berger over head bridge, tear gas were fired and in midst of the chaos motor ran over his brother – Sadiq and he died.
Another eye witness also narrated how the hoodlums descended on them with sticks and other dangerous weapons without any provocation.
