- A group of individuals suspected to be hoodlums have burnt down the police station situated in Orile-Iganmu Local Government Area of Lagos State.
The police station services both Iganmu community in Apapa Iganmu and Orile Community in Coker/Aguda.
It is unclear the demands of the hoodlums who set the police station ablaze.
Following the destruction of the police station, many #EndSARS protesters have taken to social media to condemn the action of the hoodlums.
They insist they have nothing to do with the incident noting that there was no #EndSARS protest in Orile area of Lagos State on Tuesday.
The hoodlums who hijacked the continuing peaceable EndSARS protest had been seen of their numbers, in a video circulating on Twitter, armed, and beating up a police officer after setting hearth within the station.
The thugs were said to have disguised themselves as if they were with #ENDSARS Protesters, campaigning against extra judicial killings, maltreatment, assaults, etc, by the operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS, to perpetuate the crime.
They were carrying different weapons ranging from kitchen knife, broken bottles, and machetes. Trying to gain entrance an eyewitness said they were resisted by Police officers on ground.
Two persons have been confirmed dead. One is reportedly injured.
