EndSARS protesters besiege force headquarters

Protesters demanding the reformation of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad have besieged the force headquarters, Abuja.

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.

Fotonz Grid had earlier reported that there was outrage across the country on Sunday over the harassment, extortion and extra-judicial killings of innocent Nigerians by operatives of the FSARS, one of the units of the Nigeria Police Force.

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege; and the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, were among Nigerians who expressed dissatisfaction over the conduct of  FSARS operatives, describing it as unacceptable.

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had earlier, in a swift reaction to the extra-judicial killings and harassment of innocent Nigerians, banned personnel of the FSARS from engaging in routine patrols, stop-and-search, mounting of roadblocks and traffic checks with immediate effect.
