Anti-EndSARS thugs have burnt cars of peaceful #ENDSARS protesters at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The miscreants are believed to be anti-#EndSARS campaigners. They have on multiple occasions attacked the protesters.

Monday’s attack by the Anti-EndSARS thugs happened simultaneously while the police were also dispersing the protesters.





In a tweet, the Feminist Coalition said the thugs were sent to incite violence to discredit the ongoing protest.

“The cars of peaceful protesters have allegedly been set on fire in Abuja by these thugs that continue to disrupt and incite violence.

“Abuja protesters please head to safety! Your lives matter and should not be dispensable due to political games,” the tweet reads.

Watch the video of the burning cars below.

A female protester holding a Nigerian flag was beaten up by the policemen in an attempt to retrieve it from her.
