Nigerians remain defiant in their demand for the scrapping of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS).
The demand, which was first made in 2017, has currently led many to the streets of cities globally, demanding nothing but an end to the existence of the brutal squad often accused of extortion, killings and violation of human rights.
The latest demonstration began earlier in the week and has continued despite the assertion of President Muhammadu Buhari that the unit of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) will be reformed.
The president who pleaded for patience spoke yesterday urging citizens not to doubt his resolve to reform the security outfit.
But Nigerians who reacted to the president’s plea on social media rebuffed, saying demonstration will only end when their demands are met.
In Abuja, Omoyele Sowore, leader of the Revolution Now Movement alongside members of his group are demonstrating on the streets of the nation’s capital today.
As at press time, the police who traditionally clamp down on protesters are yet to disrupt the peaceful demonstration just as the #EndSARSProtests online have continued to trend.
