Nigerian entertainers have condemned the attack on #EndSARS protesters in Lagos state by thugs.

Earlier, armed hoodlums dispelled youths protesting police brutality at the Lagos state assembly gate in Ikeja.

The incident comes a day after protesters were attacked in Abuja and an ARISE TV camera smashed.

The development has attracted criticism from public figures across social media platforms, particularly on Twitter.

Yemi Alade, a Nigerian Afropop singer, said it was unfortunate that youths were deployed against their colleagues fighting for a better society.

 

Mr Macaroni, a comedian, said the incident suggests that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the state governor, had failed to make good his promise of protecting protesters peacefully airing their grievances.

Here are reactions from other celebrities:
