The Force Headquarters of the Nigeria Police, Abuja, says 22 police personnel were killed and many others injured during the #ENDSARS protests.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, made this disclosure on Friday, adding that many others were inflicted with life-threatening injuries while 205 police stations and formations were burnt.
Mba, in a statement said that other critical private and public infrastructure were also damaged by hoodlums who hijacked the protests.
The Police said despite these unprovoked attacks, their officers never resorted to use of unlawful force or shooting at the protesters.
The Police debunked a report by Amnesty International that protesters were shot at, saying they acted professionally, exercised commendable restraints and some paid the supreme price during the protests.
