Abuja #EndSARS Protesters defy ban, blocks Abuja Airport Road

#EndSARS protesters, Friday ignored the order of the Federal Capital Territory Security Committee, banning them from carrying out their constitutional rights of expressing their emotions/views on issues affecting the society.

FCT had yesterday warned that nobody should come out and protest, to stem the spread of Covid-19 in the country.

However, this did not augur well with protesters who took their campaign to Abuja Airport Road, and block the entire area, demanding for an end to police brutality, extra-judicial killings and other felonious crime perpetrated by the Nigerian police.

The protesters, mostly youth, took their campaign to the FCT Airport Road which serves as a major entrance and exit to the capital city on Friday afternoon.

The campaign, which has drawn attention from different parts of the world, has been on for over a week.

Demonstrators disobeyed the order and continued with the protests on Thursday and Friday.

As of today, the Airport Road is experiencing a total gridlock as a result of the #EndSars Protest.
