The Nigerian female activist and co-convener of Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG), Aisha Yesufu has made a fresh allegation against the Federal Government of Nigeria in a video, saying it sponsored hoodlums who hijacked the EndSARS protest which took place across different parts of the country in October.

The EndSARS protest started peacefully until hoodlums took hold of the protest as an avenue to attack private and public property.

Mrs Aisha Yesufu while speaking in a video interview with Arise TV on Tuesday, said that the Federal Government was to be blamed for the destruction that followed the EndSARS protest.

"EndSARS protest was never hijacked by hoodlums. The government brought in hoodlums. Why is the media so scared to say this simple fact?", Aisha Yesufu asked in a video which was released after she lost internet connection with the broadcast station, Arise TV.

Aisha Yesufu has been one of the top vocal voices since the commencement of the EndSARS campaign as she has shown her support in many ways to the EndSARS protest.

Many Nigerians have made the call for the resumption of the EndSARS protest. This time, the EndSARS protest would aim to call for the release of the youths detained for protest and unfreezing of accounts of some of the top voices during the EndSARS protest.

It was reported yesterday (Monday) that Police and the Army were deployed to Lekki Toll Gate and other parts of Lagos to forestall the resumption of the EndSARS protest.

However, some sources said that the protest held in Abuja and Osun state.
