Youths Turn Protest To Carnival In Osun, Lagos

The #EndSARS protest turned into carnivals of a sort in Osun and Lagos states on Tuesday.

Music and food were in full flow as the youths sang and danced.

At Ola-Iya junction in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, protesters set up a canopy, under which was a sound system.

The protesters organized a dance competition among themselves; some played football at the junction.

The protest started around 10:35 am with the youths barricading roads to the junction.

They made bonfires on the streets, making it impossible for motorists to access the major junction.

In Lagos, the protesters again stormed the seat of power in Alausa, Ikeja.

They came prepared to stay for as long as possible.
