Police unleash teargas, batons on Abuja #EndSARS protesters
The police in Abuja fired tear gas at some anti-SARS protesters and used batons to pummel others on Friday.
The ill treatment came as Nigerians took to the streets for the third day to demand immediate dissolution of brutal and corrupt police anti-robbery squad, SARS.
