Hundreds of protesters venting their anger over the activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a special unit of the Nigeria Police Force on Thursday besieged the force headquarters in Abuja.
The protesters who included the convener of the #RevolutionNow group, Omoyele Sowore demanded for the immediate reformation of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
They lamented that the special unit had abandoned its core mandate and resorted to mindless brutality against hapless Nigerians.
The #EndSARS campaigners sat on the Shehu Shagari Way, shouting ‘EndSARS,’ while paralysing vehicular traffic.
They also wielded placards with the same inscription.
The protesters poured red paint on the road to illustrate the killings and bloodshed by SARS operatives, many of whom have been indicted for rights violations, including extra-judicial killings, extortion, illegal detention and other misconduct.
