Nigerian youths have taken the street protesting against the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) despite effort by the Inspector General to reform the Unit. This show that what Nigerians want is not reform.
Last night Lagos youth took to the street to express their anger and to seek for the disbandment of the police unit.
Youths said the protest is in respect of the continuous harassment encountered in the hands of the SARS operatives, citizens killed on daily bases yet, not an officer has been charged nor dismissed.
In Lagos today, the campaign continued at the entrance of Lagos State House of Assembly Complex. One of the Lagos protest leaders is the Nigerian popular musician, Folarin Falana (Falz). According to an eye-witness, protesters spent the night at the entrances chanting a solidarity song saying “EndSARS”.
However, the lawmaker representing SurulereFederal Constituency, Desmond Elliot addressed the protesters saying, the activities of SARS are beyond reforms and having a hotline to complain. He laid emphasis that, “the Inspector General of Police must hasten the process in order to avoid any rowdy protest. If police are working for the people, and people are now calling for its end, it means we have to act now”.
The protest later spread across other states like Delta, Edo, Kwara, Abuja and Imo.
