The Nigerian Police say two police officers were killed in the West African country’s Lagos State by hoodlums.
The state’s command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Muyiwa Adejobi, in a statement on Wednesday, said the hoodlums pretended they were part of the #EndSARS protest.
He added that 10 police stations in Idimu, Igando, Layeni, Denton, Ilemba Hausa, Ajah, Amukoko, Ilasa, Cele Outpost areas of the state were attacked.
He said, “Similarly, the hoodlums attacked three new generation banks on Tuesday, October 20, and Wednesday, October 21, 2020, and carted away unspecified amount of money, while some parts of the banks were set on fire before they were dislodged. Some of them were arrested with the loots from the banks, including arms and ammunition.
“In the Ajegunle area, they burnt the Secretariat of Ajeromi Ifelodun Local Government Area and some valuables, including cars, and other private medical and commercial centres were attacked.
“Today, Wednesday, October 21, 2020, the hoodlums again launched a series of attacks on many facilities within Lagos State, such as the palace of the Oba of Lagos, Shoprite Ajah, Nigerian Ports Authority head office, Marina, the governor mother’s house at Akerele, VIO/Federal Road Safety Corps’ offices at Ojodu, magistrates’ courts, Igbosere, TVC station, the Nation Newspapers office, and many other shops/malls were looted.”
The police spokesman vowed that the command would repel any group of individuals that might want to continue with the barbaric acts across the state.
