I finally have video evidence. This is Kabusa junction in Abuja. These thugs are burning people's cars. Take note, they are not the #endsars protesters. Sleep out tonight if you must, do not follow that route pic.twitter.com/e8E7G9rSq7— Sonia Igho (@IghoSonia) October 19, 2020

The protesters had converged on Dan Kogi, a junction close to a Shoprite mall. They blocked the road and wielded their placards.
Their attackers swooped on them from different directions while many of them scuttled to safety.
The attack created tension as traders in the market close to the scene locked up their shops earlier than usual.

Abuja protesters have come under attacks, both from security operatives and suspected hoodlums.
The latest attack comes 24 hours after the death of Anthony Onome, an Abuja resident who was stabbed while marching with other protesters on Saturday.
Onome died at the National Hospital, Abuja, where he was taken to after the incident in the Kubwa area of the nation’s capital.
