The illegal activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) operatives have forced Nigerian youths to organise EndSARS protest and demand the disbandment of the police unit.
Protesters gathered in front of the Lagos House of Assembly in Ikeja area of the state and spent the night in front of the legislative building.
It should be noted that SARS operatives in the country have been involved in numerous human rights violations of Nigerian citizens.
In some pictures posted on Twitter by a documentary photographer identified as Tobi James, Nigerian youths participating in the protest could be seen sleeping on the floor as they made their demands for SARS to be disbanded.
Nigerian celebrities including Falz, Runtown, Tiwa Savage and Mr Macaroni joined their compatriots in the peaceful protest.
In related news, amid the ongoing protest against SARS, the Senate has mandated its committees on Judiciary and Police Affairs to investigate allegations of extrajudicial killings against the operatives.
The Senate also resolved that indicted officers must be arrested and prosecuted according to the law.
The resolution was the sequel to a motion moved by Senator Oluremi Tinubu (APC/Lagos Central) at plenary on Wednesday, October 7.
The president of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, said:
“We want to hear from you (committees) what happened to those that killed innocent Nigerians, including those that happened in the past.”
