Edo #ENDSARS protesters block Highway, hosts carnival - Inmates escapes from Prison (video)
Edo state #ENDSARS protesters have blocked the busy Benin/Agbor highway with bonfires at spaces of less than 30 meters.
People have to walk to their various destinations as there was no vehicles plying the roads.
The protest was taken to the carnival level at Jehovah Junction, as the youths mounted heavy loudspeakers on the double-carriage way dishing out Idris Abdulkareem’s ‘Nigeria Jagajag’.
There was drama when a goat that walked into the protesters was hijacked, strangled to death and roasted in the bonfire on the road.
One of the protesters who gave his name simply as Osayuki, said the protest is no longer about police brutality alone, but a call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said: “I’ve been praying to God to see this day and I’m happy that u finally see this day. We have waited for too too long, we have kept quite for too long.
“The protest in not just about police brutality any more. We are saying that Buhari must go, we are tired of him and his anti-people policies.”
