Although, both parties have denied the allegations, the latest attack questions the sincerity of government on the safety of protesters.

It is worthwhile to note that #EndSARS protesters have remained resilient in their calls for reforms in the nation’s police architecture.

The protests which started as a call for the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) has now snowballed into a wider call against police brutality, justice and improved working conditions for police officers.

The dogged stance of the protesters have elicited various reactions from government quarters. Attacks on peaceful protesters is believed to be a way the government plans to forcefully shut down the protests.
