A group of aggrieved youths have stormed the streets of Lagos to protest the brutality and demand an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
The protest which started on Twitter has now moved to the street of Lagos with youths using the hashtag #LagosProtests, displaying their placards high above with various inscriptions which portrayed their tiredness towards police brutality and unlawful killings.
The youths in a signed petition said despite several reforms announced by the Inspector General of Police, “cases of abuse of citizens by operatives of the Special Anit-Robbery Squad have increased without any steps taken by the high command of the Nigeria Police Force to address the fundamental problem of impunity of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.”
They, therefore, demand the total dissolve of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad. According to reports, they plan to take the protest to Police Headquarters in Ikeja and to the Lagos State House of Assembly and continue for the next three days.
