The #EndSARS Protests Spread Across the World
The #EndSARS protests have taken place in several cities across the world including, London, Berlin, New York, and Toronto.
Tens of celebrities across the globe such as Manchester United footballer Odion Ighalo, Beyonce Kanye West, John Boyega, Rihanna, and Diddy have voiced their support for the protesters online.
On Tuesday, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called on President Buhari and the Nigerian army “to stop killing” protesters.
The Nigerians youths are yet to stop the alleged protest nationwide. The president has given a speech on it. But it appears the youths sadden with the economy which they felt was full of unemployment, and poverty ravaging the African most popular country.
WHAT ARE THE DEMAND OF NIGERIANS YOUTHS?
According to the source, the demand is as follows:
“The disbanding of SARS is only the first step in our commitment to extensive police reform in order to ensure that the primary duty of the police and other law enforcement agencies remains the protection of lives and livelihood of our people,” President Muhammadu Buhari said.
Authorities later ordered all personnel to report to the police headquarters in the capital, Abuja, for debriefing and psychological and medical examination. Meanwhile, the forming of a new Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team was announced to replace SARS.
