Nigerians still protesting against police brutality
Protest Against Brutality By Nigeria's Special Unit ContinuesPublished on October 11, 2020, Allafrica
Anti-police brutality protesters have continued to march through major cities in the country at the weekend, with the demonstrations in some areas resulting in clashes with riot police called in by government to end the protests. The protesters have refused to back down until the presidency and the police hierarchy give in to their demand to ban the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police nationwide. Well-known global entertainment figures, like Diddy, Treyz Song, Chance the Rapper, Lil Baby, Damson Idris, City Girls, and Nigeria's John Boyega, have thrown their weight behind the cause. Numerous stories of abuse have been posted by Nigerians on social media under #EndSARS.
