End SARS protesters at Nyanya in Nasarawa State, have been beaten by operatives of the Nigeria Police Force.
This is coming four days after the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, warned against use of force.
The IGP had said, “the fundamental right of freedom of expression, assembly, and movement must always be upheld and protected by the police”.
The police operatives attacked some protesters carrying the Nigerian flag.
The assault by the Police occurred in at least two locations of the nation’s capital and Nyanya.
Watch video below:
Look at Police Officers beating peaceful protesters in Abuja. They have just flags and cardboard papers yet they are being beaten the same police men the IGP apparently said he ordered not to attack peaceful protesters. This is shameful.#IGPMustResign #AbujaProtests #EndSARS pic.twitter.com/5u5u76qlEo
