At least one person was killed, many injured in Abuja on Saturday after suspected Fulani herdsmen attacked #EndSARS protesters.
ABN TV correspondent was at the scene of the incident around NNPC junction in the Kubwa area of the city.
As at the moment of this report, residents of the area were scampering for safety.
Our correspondent gathered that the protest which is at its 10th days was going on smoothly before the Fulani herdsmen swooped on them, killing one person on the spot.
Others escaped with various degrees of injuries.
ABN TV had early hours on Saturday reports that Hundreds of #EndSARS protesters have barricaded the Kubwa-Zuba expressway, Abuja, grinding traffic to a halt on Saturday.
While some of the campaigners blocked the Kubwa section of the expansive highway, close to the NNPC junction, others were said to have also blocked off the Gwarimpa section causing a serious traffic jam in the area.
Our correspondent learnt that the activists had earlier passed through Gado Nasko Way, a major road in Kubwa, before taking over the highway.
The youths blared music from their cars, danced and chanted slogans demanding police reforms, good governance, and a safer nation.
The action has stranded motorists and commuters on the 10-lane highway for many hours.
No security personnel was seen in the vicinity.
This is happening less than 24 hours after the activists took over the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Road, Abuja, forcing residents living in that axis to spend the night in their vehicles.
