A video has surfaced of the inhumane treatment meted out on suspects arrested during the #EndSARS protesters and detained at Area F Police Station in Lagos State.
According to Coker Tokunboh who was arrested by the Lagos State Taskforce, the people were detained and their phones collected to prevent them from communicating with their families.
It was gathered that these people were kept in a police van which were locked until they started suffocating and collapsing.
Coker wrote, ‘Innocent people that were paraded as looters, vandals and robbers in Lagos. These people were raided from different parts of Lagos by Soldiers and me by Lagos Taskforce. They were raided, collected their phones so they won’t be able to communicate with their people. They have been detained since in Last Thursday at Area F Police station without feeding them. Which way Nigeria, when will the justice reign in Nigeria? #BETTERNIGERIA #EndBadGoveranceInNigeria #EndSARSProtest #BlameGovernment’

This happened just as the Ministry of Interior has placed a no-fly list on the frontline organizers of the #EndSARS protest while confiscating the passport of Modupe Odele who provided legal aid through the Feminist Coalition, a women group that fights for the right of women and who also sought for resources to fund the protest.
The Ministry through it’s immigration department restricted Modupe’s movement and seized her passport with no explanation given.
