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.
One of the protesters told newsmen that many have been injured following the attack and insisted that the armed men were sponsored to disrupt the peaceful demonstration.
The protesters however repelled the attackers. They insist on carrying out peaceful demonstrations until their demands are met.
