As at the last count, not less than four #ENDSARS protesters were feared to have been mowed down by security agents on Wednesday, while government properties were set on fire in the fame commercial town of Aba, Abia State.

First to go up in smoke was the notorious Omoba Road Police Station in the Ogbor Hill area of the town, followed by Aba South LGA Secretariat and the state high court building.

Youths of the city who felt shortchanged by subsequent administrations in Abia have capitalised on the ongoing #ENDSARS protests to vent their frustrations on government buildings.

Both police and army, who had taken positions with the aim of stopping the protests, appeared helpless as the protesters continued their march on major streets of in the Enyimba City.
