#EndSARS: Protests in Abuja Despite the Presence of the Army

It is no longer news that the Nigerian army had announced that operation crocodile smile will commence nationwide from October 20th, 2020 to the very last day of the year.

While this is an annual Nigerian army exercise, these are sensitive times as well in Nigerian history as the #EndSARS protests continue nationwide.

The protest is against police brutality and a lot of well meaning Nigerians had asked the federal government not to get the military involved.

However, military men were seen on the streets of the FCT, as they also prepare for their forthcoming exercise which starts tomorrow.

This did not stop Nigerians though, as protesters came out in mass to protest holding the Nigerian flag, which shows that they are not against the military.

Protests also happened along the Nyanya, Karu and Maraba axis, which isn't to far from Asokoro. But unlike many other places, these protests in Abuja have been peaceful, as the military cannot attact them because the Nigerian flag shows that they are also servants of the country.
