Thugs in Abuja who are perpetrating violence in the guise of EndSARS protest on Tuesday, October 20, burnt down the Dutse Makaranta police station in the Kubwa area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The Cable reports that this act of violence on the part of the hoodlums is an off-shoot of the clash that ensued between them and some policemen earlier on Saturday, October 17, which reportedly resulted in the death of one of the protesters, Anthony Onome.

According to The Nation, the mob set the station ablaze after an officer allegedly opened fire to disperse it, leading to the death of one person, a report which the police command in Abuja has debunked.

Meanwhile, 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 had caused already.

The thugs had gone ahead to burn the Ugbekun police station in Benin, the state capital. The criminals were 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.
