Protest

 

Blood flowed freely on Tuesday at the Santana Market along Sapele Road in Benin after policemen and hoodlums clashed in Edo state. 

 

This comes after the state government imposed a 24-hour curfew.

 

The government had placed the curfew on the state following the violence which erupted on Monday during the #EndSARS protests rocking the country.

 

But from Ekenwan Road to Airport Road, Sapele Road and other interchange junctions within Benin metropolis, the youths took over strategic positions as they chanted anti government slogans.

 

The protest equally resumed in Auchi as the youths again regrouped at the popular Jattu junction, allowing only motorists on essential duties were allowed free passage.

 

Meanwhile, security has been tightened in parts of the state capital and adjoining towns.

 

Hoodlums had hijacked the #EndSARS protests in the state on Monday when they attacked two correctional centres freeing inmates.

 

The thugs had also burnt down no fewer than five police stations in the state.
