The station was torched after policemen clashed with suspected thugs in the area where Anthony Onome, an #EndSARS protester, was stabbed on Saturday.

Onome later died at the National Hospital, Abuja.

The mob was said to have set the station on fire after a policeman reportedly opened fire while trying to disperse the crowd that converged outside the station.
