Youths in Portharcourt, the River State capital has flooded the streets, protesting in support of the #ENDSARS in outright defiance of Governor Wike’s order against street demonstration.
This is coming after popular former Big Brother Naija Housemate Anita Natasha Akide bowed to Governor Wike’s threat to bring anyone who defies the protest order to book.
The #ENDSARS protest has been raging on since last week as Nigerians troops out in major cities to call for the end of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a police unit notorious for illegal arrest, extortion, torture and murder.
The statement read in part “The Rivers State Government hereby wish to inform the general public that all forms of protests have been banned throughout the State. Therefore, all proposed protests under #EndSars Campaign are hereby prohibited.
We earlier reported that Nigerian protesters have started trending 5for5 to push for a new demand after the government banned the Special Anti-Robbery Squad
