An NGO, Thyaura Partner Concept Limited, on Saturday in Surulere, Lagos State, cleaned up garbage from the aftermath of the #EndSars protest which was hijacked by hoodlums. Mr Ekene Ebonyi, the Finance Manager of the organisation, told newsmen in Lagos that hoodlums had taken the advantage of the break in law and order to loot some property and shops.
Ebonyi appealed to the government to deliver on its promises and meet the demands of the ‘Five Points Agenda’ demanded by the youths.

Also speaking, Mr Ibukun Ogunsina, Quality Assurance Manager of the NGO, said it was disheartening that the protest, which started with great credible expectations, was hijacked by hoodlums. Ogunsina, however, said that the unity of the youths sent a strong message to the ruling class that they were not doing enough in catering to the needs of the masses.
Mr Raheem Akande, a volunteer, said that it was with great joy that he volunteered to clean up the state so that activities can get back to normalcy. Akande was happy that the protest attracted the attention of the government to the dire needs of multitudes in poverty demanding a solution to their problems.
