All public and private schools have been shut until November 2, 2020.
The peaceful #EndSARS protest on Wednesday night took a violent turn in Delta State after thugs set fire to government offices and property in Asaba, the state capital.
The office of the Federal Road Safety Corps along the Benin-Asaba-Onitsha Expressway and the beautification garden at the nearby Koka Junction were set ablaze by the miscreants.
A senior FRSC official, who confirmed the development to our correspondent, said, “Our office has been completely razed down. As I talk to you can't pick a pin. But I thank God none of my staff was touched."
Our correspondent, who visited the scene, observed that the entire office and over 15 vehicles impounded by the commission including a lorry with cement were razed by the thugs.
