The spokesperson of the Apapa-Iganmu Local Government Area, Ayo Micheal who confirmed the incident said, “Yes, the station has been attacked.

Narating how two persons were allegedly shot dead in the incident, Michael said:

“What happened is that some boys came out this morning. They assembled themselves at Orile Junction. They were about marching down to Apapa. Just like yesterday that they started at Apapa Ports. They were on their way to Apapa, I learnt they passed through the police station and protested there.

“As they were protesting, police officers attempted to disperse them. They resisted the police. Before you know it, two boys were shot in the shoulder and chest. The two of them have died, according to reports that I got.”

Following the destruction of the police station, many #EndSARS protesters have taken to social media to condemn the action of the hoodlums.

They insist they have nothing to do with the incident noting that there was no #EndSARS protest in Orile area of Lagos State on Tuesday.
