Policemen shared sticks and batons to hired thugs in Utako and conveyed them with buses to Berger to attack #ENDSARS protesters. The system is rotten.— Kelvin Odanz (@MrOdanz) October 14, 2020

Someone mobilised armed thugs to attack peaceful #EndSWAT protesters in Berger, Abuja & the @PoliceNG that had been quick to attack protesters went missing. The Govt whose responsibility it is to protect Nigerians should be ashamed. As should those sowing seeds of discord.— O. A. U. (@OrjiUka) October 14, 2020
A group of thugs have just attacked #EndSARS protesters at the Berger roundabout. After initially fleeing, the protesters have gathered and chased the thugs away. One of the thugs was apprehended and handed over to an NSCDC patrol team station there.#SARSMUSTEND— We are all Jimoh Isiaq (@I_Am_Ilemona) October 14, 2020
