Nigerians are again protesting against the continuous extortion and brutality by Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) with #ENDSARS.
#ENDSARS is now being campaigned for by Nigerians who took to their social media pages to protest as they share their fears, experiences of extortion and brutality by the officials of Nigeria’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
See some of posts being shared on social media below.
The criminal activities of the Nigerian Police, not just the SARS alone is a resultant effect of a dysfunctional society. Nigeria is bastardized by the political elitist leaders by their corrupt practices, undermining our public institutions for their selfish interests. #EndSARS – @TosinOlugbenga

May be we should start donating laptops to police stations so that officers know it can be used for other things than Yahoo Yahoo. #EndSARS now, Our creative minds can’t be stifled and suppressed.

This movement this time was fueled by the experience of a software engineer who shared his recent experience of being extorted by the officials of SARS who were armed when he was abducted, allegedly pointed a gun at him, beat him up and locked him up after he was unable to pay the N1 Million demanded from him.
