After breaking into a prison and releasing inmates on Monday, October 19, hoodlums who have hijacked the EndSARS protest in Edo state seem unsatisfied with the havoc they have caused already.

The criminals are also intending to cause another jailbreak at the Oko Prison in the capital, following the chaos they caused along the Sapele Road earlier on Monday.

Eyewitnesses told journalists that the assembly of the hoodlums outside the prison is increasing in number and that in no time, they may break into the facility.

Earlier, several inmates were freed as some suspected hoodlums broke into the Benin Prison popularly called White House during the ongoing EndSARS protest.

According to a news report, an armed squad of prison officials engaged the suspected hoodlums in gunfire. This was reported to have resulted in some persons sustaining injuries.

Meanwhile, an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain in Delta, Joel-Onowakpo Thomas, had called on Nigerian youths to put an end to the EndSARS movement since their demands had been heard by the federal government.

Thomas stated that the continued protest of the youths on the streets, despite the government's willingness to positively respond to their requests, would give room for hoodlums to hijack the situation and begin their evil activities as they have already started in some states.

The APC bigwig who was also a state coordinator of Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) for Delta, Edo and Rivers expressed fear that if care was not taken, the protest might degenerate to something unpalatable across the nation.

He called on the youths to give the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration the chance to start implementing their demands as it had promised.
