Following the dissolution of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad SARS, the IGP also noted that the officers will be deployed to other factions of the police. This development did not go down well with Nigerians as they have continued the end SARS protests.
This morning, a number of protesters formed a human chain at the Lekki toll gate, demanding that the government ends SARS completely.
“End SARS now, not deployment,” the protesters chanted as they blocked the toll gate, preventing commuters from going through
Several Nigerians have stated that this isn’t the first time the promise to disband SARS has been made, the only difference this time being the language used, yet nothing gets done. Some pointed out that having the same rogue officers deployed to other units in the force will mean that the assault on the youths will continue, albeit in a different form.
A form making the rounds asking Nigerians to tick their demands, has seen people simply asking the authorities to end SARS completely and not redeploy the officers.
