#EndSARS Protest OnoBello

Despite an appeal for calm by the President Muhammadu Buhari, Nigerian youths on Saturday October 10 continued the #EndSARS and police brutality protests in Lagos and other states across the country.

The youths protested at Ikorodu and Lekki areas of Lagos State. The movement which has since garnered attention far and wide is against the harassment, extra-judiciary killings and extortion of operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

The placard-carrying protesters chanted “EndSARS” as they marched through the streets of Lagos peacefully. Also protesters have been keeping vigil at the entrance of the Lagos State House of Assembly despite intimidation from the police.

Meanwhile, others stormed the residence of Lagos Deputy Governor Femi Hamzat to protest, demanding not leave until they’re addressed.

 

Several Nigerian celebrities have expressed support for the movement and also participated in physical protests including Don Jazzy, Toyin AbrahamNse Ikpe-Etim and Tacha who stepped out alongside concerned citizens on Saturday.

Earlier this week, the police reported that one protestor and one police officer were killed on Thursday while another sustained life-threatening injuries during a protest in the Ughelli, Delta State.

On Friday, protestors gathered peacefully in Lagos; but in Abuja and Osun State there was violence. The protest has been met with violence from the police in states like Abuja, Osun and Delta.

The #ENDSARS protest has drawn international attention after the United Kingdom urged the Nigerian Government to ensure accountability within the police.

The movement initially targeted FSARS, widely accused of unlawful arrests, torture, and murder, but has since broadened to include all police forces. The FSARS unit was earlier suspended on Sunday from routine patrols.
