#ENDSARS Protesters Block Third Mainland Bridge
The third mainland bridge in Lagos has been shut down partially by #EndSARS protesters as the protest continues.
The bridge is one of the busiest part of the state and connects the mainland with the island.
WITHIN NIGERIA gathered that at about 5:30pm on Friday, protesters chanting “End SARS!” prevented free flow of traffic on one section of the bridge, leaving people who were returning from work stranded.
Both sides of the bridge which is currently under the repairs have been blocked.
Meanwhile, the ongoing protest against police brutality and extrajudicial killings was on Friday disrupted in Edo State as the protesters were attacked by some armed men.
The attackers struck after the protesters gathered at the King’s axis of Benin City, the Edo State capital.
The attackers chased the protesters as they brandished machetes and shot into the air.
