In order to curtail the ongoing End Sars protest, the Federal Government of Nigeria has sent out military troops in a few vital areas in Abuja, the country’s capital. The protests which is pointed toward halting police brutality have been seething in various places across the nation for more than 10 days.
This is coming few days after the military central leadership declared that it would initiate the ‘Activity Crocodile Smile’. While cops cordoned off pieces of the Three Arms Zone, Ralph Shodeinde Street, troopers were positioned at key pieces of the Goodluck E.
Jonathan Expressway through AYA Roundabout to the base camp of the Central Bank of Nigeria, the vigorously equipped soldiers, huge numbers of whom were wearing dark face covers, blockaded segments of the turnpike, the AYA intersection, the Central Bank of Nigeria base camp and other different areas the protesters had set apart for their fights.
Recall that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, had earlier said on Saturday that the administration would at this point don’t crease its arms while the fights proceed. Probably, that is why military operatives are deployed against the protesters.
Despite the fact that the military said the activity had no relationship with the protest, numerous Nigerians actually trust it was pointed toward obstructing the peaceful demonstrations.
