#EndSARS protesters have hired private security to protect them against hoodlums in Lagos amid the protest against police brutality.
This development is coming after the protests both in Abuja and Lagos were almost hijacked by hoodlums.
The protesters are also mobilizing private security to protect their counterparts in other states.
This move by the protesters has generated a lot of reactions from Nigerians.
