End SARS protesters in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State held a Jumat prayer during the protest at Ola-iya, Gbogan-Osogbo expressway, Osun State.
The protesters held a two-rakats prayer at the expressway in Osogbo.
Meanwhile, a cross-section of Civil Society Groups and social crusaders who joined the ongoing protest against brutality, extra-judicial killing and bad governance in Nigeria have lamented the infiltration of hoodlums.
Press had reported that there was chaos among the End SARS protesters on Thursday morning as suspected cultists infiltrated and disrupted proceedings.
The Civil Society Groups had earlier faulted the pattern of the protests claiming it was a recipe for public disturbance.
One of the protesters; members of a civil society, Comrade Ayo Ologun who spoke with Press reiterated that some hoodlums took up the protest in Osun during the week and turned it against the resident and the government.
He explained that the goal is to call for the reform of the Nigeria Police and not against the state government.
Ologun said, “ whether sponsored or what, some hoodlums took over the protest and some of us who have the comrade background call some civil society groups out to take over the protest from the hands of hoodlums.
“Myself, Comrade Waheed Lawal, Comrade Waheed Saka, Olawale Bakare and other members of the civil society group are here with a unity of purpose that we cannot avoid leaving this protest in the hands of hoodlums.
“Though, they can join us. The truth is today’s protest has been peaceful, there is no report of harassment, vandalisation and there is no attack from any side,” he said.
