Igbere TV reports that Afrobeat singer Femi Anikulapo-Kuti on Thursday joined the #EndSARS protesters in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos to offer his support after armed men stormed the area.
Men armed with machetes and other weapons arrived at the protest scene and immediately sent protesters and bystanders scampering for safety.
Femi, 58, got to the scene moments later with his son Omorinmade Anikulapo-Kuti.
In a tweet, Femi urged the protesters to continue.
In another tweet, he said the armed men were chased away.
Femi told a fan who hailed him for showing up in Alausa that the protest was for the youths and that he only came around because armed men invaded the protest.
It was gathered that one person was injured in the attack.
Femi had on October 12 joined the protest in Ajuwon area of Ogun State and allegedly prevented the police from shooting at the protesters.
