The EndSARS protest which turned violent after the alleged killings at Lekki toll gate triggered alot of violence in the country last year.
Rivers State was among the states that felt the heat of the violence triggered by the EndSARS protest.
Recall, after the alleged killings at Lekki toll, two police stations, and a court was burnt down in Oyigbo local Government area of Rivers State, and this made the Governor of the state to request for the immediate intervention of the military.
During that period, the Governor blamed everything that happened in rivers state on IPOB members, and the army dealt with so many people in Oyigbo.
Many men/boys were arrested and locked up. According to reports from Sahara Reporters, A Magistrates' Court sitting in Wuse, Abuja, received a bail application filed on their behalf by human rights’ lawyers, and orders were given to the military to release the Oyigbo residents in their custody. This reportedly happened on Wednesday, February 10, 2021.
