EndSARS protesters on Thursday marched to the National Assembly complex, demanding probe of brutality and high-handedness by the now-defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the Nigerian Police Force.

The youths with placards and inscriptions, blocked vehicular movements in the area and entrance of the National Assembly, chanting songs of solidarity.

Though they were stopped at the entrance by the security agents, the protesters insisted that the leadership of the National Assembly must address them before they vacate the scene.

After over an hour of chanting, the aggrieved youths were met by the Senate Majority and Minority leaders, Yahaya Abdullahi and Enyinnaya Abaribe.

Addressing the legislators, the spokesman of the group lamented that SARS operatives sent thugs to attack them and in the process they damaged their cars and other belongings.

He demanded that the lawmakers should fix their cars and ensure that the erring officers were brought to book.

He said, ”These thugs came across us and began to attack our people, peaceful protesters. They damaged our cars, injured some of us. If not because we are very courageous Nigerian youths and resilient generation we would have ran away but made sure they got some beatings before we took them to the hospital, they damaged over six cars here, we brought only the ones that we could, they stole our wallets and phones.”
