A suspected hoodlum, Sunday Effiong, alleged to be one of the thugs who hijacked the #EndSARS protests in Edo State and was involved in the looting of a police station in the state has been arrested.
Effiong who was paraded by the Edo state police command, was identified in a viral video that captured him leaving the Oba Market police station with an AK-47 rifle after he and other hoodlums had raided the police station on October 19th.
The police said that the suspect formed a robbery gang that has been terrorizing Benin and its environs until his arrest.
Recall that in October, the #EndSARS call against police brutality which started off as a peaceful protest was hijacked by hoodlums and caused chaos in different parts of the country.
The hoodlums were involved in razing down shops, private and government owned establishment, looting of warehouses amongst other vices.
