The youths, who came from all the 23 local government areas in Rivers State, converged in front of the Port Harcourt Polo Club, carrying placards and banners with different inscriptions, marched through major roads and streets in the state capital.

Some of the inscriptions on the placards read; “We Say No To SARS, We Stand With President Buhari”, “We Say Yes To Victims Support Fund, We Say Yes To President Buhari”.

Some of the inscriptions on the banners read; “We Will Not Build A Peaceful Nigeria By Following A Negative Path”, “Dialogue Is The Most Effective Way Of Resolving Conflict.”

Meanwhile, the Rivers State Civil Society Organizations, one of the groups involved in the #EndSARS protests in the state, has distanced itself from the ongoing protest.

The group’s spokesman, Enefaa Georgewill said: “Our attention has been drawn to a planned protest that will takeoff from the Port Harcourt Polo Club. We wish to distance the #EndSARS protest organizers from that. This is to allow security agencies know how to handle any situation that arises.
