The Young African Women Congress (YAWC) Network Leadership will hold an emergency meeting to discuss matters arising in the famous ENDSARS protests.
It has been widely reported with video evidence, the massacre of citizens who were peacefully demonstrating against Police brutality in recent times.
The protest which has lasted for close to two weeks has seen citizens gather at vantage locations with placards expressing their displeasure with the current state of affairs with the relationship between a particular unit of the Nigeria Police Force – SARS and the citizens. The protests had remained peaceful until pockets of raids by hoodlums and the actions of security operatives marred the process.
It has emerged that 49 people have lost their lives and many others injured when security operatives opened fire on the protesters on Monday evening, 20th October 2020 at Lekki, in Lagos State and other places.
