The EndSARS protest embarked on by aggrieved youths did not end well on day 14. After several unorthodox uses of thugs by politicians to disperse the protesters the government had resulted to the use of armed security men to attack the peaceful protesters. The Lagos State governor Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu had imposed a curfew after hoodlums had burnt down a police in Orile part of Lagos State. According to reports, the DPO had shot someone which resulted to the hoodlums setting the station ablaze.

Earlier in the day there were videos of security personnel dropping off thugs and giving them instructions to attack peaceful protesters in Abuja. In Jos, Plateau State thugs were seen unleashing mayhem against peaceful protesters. Several videos circulating social media platforms showed Policemen assisting these armed thugs in attacking peaceful protesters in so many parts of the country. These are the same policemen that the youths are fighting for a good welfare. One of the thugs was caught by the protesters and he said he was paid N500 (Five hundred naira) to come and disrupt the protests. See what the Nigerian youth has degenerated to.

At the Lekki Toll gate where the protesters have been gathering for the past 14 days, there were reports of Lagos State officials who had come to the toll gate to remove the CCTV cameras in the afternoon. The next move was to switch off the lights in the night. The protesters resorted to using candles and lights from their phones to illuminate the place. When the soldiers came, they started shooting at the peaceful protesters who were sitting on the ground. These soldiers were using live ammunitions against unarmed youths. Irrespective of the flags of Nigeria that were held, the soldiers continued shooting at young Nigerians. The people they swore to protect are the same people they are shooting.
