#EndSARS Rally Begins As Protesters Gives IG Of Police 21 Days To Grant Their Demands

Nigerians have trooped out to protest the brutality, intimidation, extortion and killings of innocent citizens by the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS ) and called for its immediate scrapping.

According to SaharaReporters, speaking at the rally, the convener #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG , Segun Awosanya said that Nigerians have spent the last one week highlighting the travails many Nigerians suffer in the hands of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS).

He said that the stories that have been recounted on social media include stories of torture, a lack of respect for the rule of law, extortion, extrajudicial murder and the disappearance of hundreds of people.

Awosanya noted that the police unit has outlived its usefulness and now constitutes a clear and present threat to the safety, well-being and welfare of most Nigerians.

The group has given the authorities 21 days within which to meet these demands failing which they will be compelled to resort to other measures to embarrass them into taking action.

They listed their demands as follows during the lead rally at the Unity Fountain Abuja:

1. We demand for an outright scrapping of the entire SARS unit across the country. Its members have become engrossed in crime, murder, brutality, extortion and disrespect for the rule of law in a manner that makes any attempt at reform a waste of time.

2. We demand the constitution of a panel by the Police Services Commission to reform the Nigerian Police in its entirety.
