The EndSARS protests continued in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, on Saturday, with more youths joining the call for an end to Police brutality, as well as demanding compensation for victims of such inhumane treatment by the Operatives of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, of the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, and calling for better governance and Leaders in the country, Page 36 learnt.
This came after the youths held a candlelight procession on Friday night, in honour of dead victims of Police brutality.
One of the youths, who simply identified as K. O. Baba, said that the procession was in honour of Chima Ikwunado, a Mechanic, who was tortured to death in the detention of the Eagle Crack Unit of the Rivers State Police Command.
Also, he said that it was to honour Daniel Ikeaguch, a Musician, shot dead by a Policeman attached to a Supermarket in Port Harcourt, and many other victims.
The youths on Saturday, however, called on the Police authorities to compensate the families of the slain victims.
Numbering over a hundred, the youths gathered at Garrison, at about 8am, and marched on Aba Express Road, through UTC Junction, on Azikiwe Road.
The situation caused a gridlock on the Aba to the Azikiwe axis of Port Harcourt, as both private and commercial vehicles were on a standstill.
