#ENDSARS Mayhem: We Evacuated N2bn From Banks, Says Army
The Nigerian Army said on Saturday that it evacuated about N2bn from banks in Lagos State after hoodlums began to attack and loot banks and businesses in the mayhem that followed the #EndSARS protests.
Taiwo said widespread looting followed the protest, adding that he was most hurt to see even women leading their children to break into private business places to loot.
Speaking of banks being broken into, Taiwo said, “We were able to help banks evacuate about N2bn after two days.”
The PUNCH had earlier reported that the Army said the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, invited the soldiers to quell the unrest in the state.
Rampaging hoodlums had hijacked the nationwide demonstration for police reform and good governance to loot and burn public and private assets in the major cities in the country, especially Lagos.
