The troops came with about seven military vans around 11:10 am on Wednesday.
 
The soldiers displayed a high level of civility and professionalism while addressing the protestants.
 
The soldiers who were fully armed reacted to the agitations and complaints lodged by protesting youths against alleged brutality, extortion and extra-judicial killings by operatives of Special Anti-Robbery Response Squad (SARS) peacefully.
 
The youths due to the calmness of the troops also conducted themselves properly as they displayed the ethos of Omoluabi, though, they only chanted solidarity songs, they reiterated the need for SARS to be scrapped.

The soldier added that they are with the protesters and would ensure they are safe in the course of their peaceful protest.
 
He said there was the need for the protesters to obey the executive order of the state governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola emphasizing that they will not attack the protesters.
