Hoodlums who reported hijacked the #EndSARS protest in Benin, Edo State, have burnt down Ugbekun and Odogbo police divisions in the city.
The hoodlums also vandalised the Benin office of DARR Communication Limited, operators of Africa Independent Television (AIT) and Ray Power radio.
However, attempt to also burn down the popular Oba Market police station was resisted by operatives of the division.
The state police command spokesman, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, could not be reached on phone for reaction.
On the attack on the Africa Independent Television (AIT) office in Benin, it was gathered that hoodlums took to the station for breaking the report of the attack on the police stations.
According to one of the members of staff of the station who craved anonymity, the hoodlums who came in their number, vandalized several vehicles in the premise.
The source wondered if the attack was because the station reported the attack on the police stations that were burnt down.
“I don’t know what could have warrant their action. We are not police, we are not government, we are only a private outfit doing our job,” he said.
The Head of Station of AIT, Bisi Akpaida, could not be reached on her mobile phones for a reaction.
