#EndSARS: Again, Police Arraign Eromosele For Breach Of Peace

The Nigeria Police Force has again arraigned an #EndSARS protester, Eromosele Peter, in court for alleged felony and breach of peace.

Peter, who was arrested at his house on November 7, was arraigned before a Yaba Magistrate court on Monday.  


On November 17, the Magistrate Court in Yaba had granted bail to Eromosele in the sum of N1million and two sureties who must be family members.

The court also rejected a request by the police to detain Eromosele for another 30 days to enable them to conclude investigations.

Eromosele is accused of providing financial aid to those who participated in the #ENDSARS protest which later turned violent after hoodlums hijacked it.
