The #EndSARS protest took a different turn as it was hijacked by thugs in various states, which led to destruction of properties, looting, and loss of lives. Anambra state being inclusive, the Nigerian army deployed an all-female squad to the state for a peace-keeping mission.
In a tweet that was shared by the governor Willie Obiano, Anambra state governor, he confirmed and also took picture with the squad, in aid to ensure peace and normalcy is restored back to the state.
“Earlier today, I received a Special Military Squad deployed to our dear State to aid in ensuring total return of peace and normalcy in Anambra.” Governor Obiano tweeted.
According to the Governor, the special squad will complement the efforts of other officers and security agencies in the state.
Prior to the arrival of the squad, the Anambra State government had restricted the movements of citizens in some part of the state to curb the spread of violence and chaos which brought about looting and vandalizing of public and government properties across the state.
Here are photos of the all-female army squad:
