Nigerians took to the street on Thursday, October 8 after years of calling for the dissolution of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, following increased cases of police harassment and brutality against the common civilians.
Jameela News understands that there have been various reports of unjust killings, beating and even robbery by this security force against the citizens they ought to be protecting.
The cry of the common Nigerian youth had to leave the screen of social media streets to the stone streets, attracting the attention of the world to the unjust killing of fellow Nigerian police officers against the Nigerian civilians.
Reacting to the nationwide protest, President Buhari assured Nigerians that the security operative had been dissolved but added that officers of the squad will be redeployed to other police units.
This clause has confused a lot of Nigerians who fear that the officers may become vindictive in the nearest future.
However, President Buhari explained that this development commences the years-long call for the reform of the Nigerian Police and various security body.
His words: “I want to use this opportunity to say I am aware of the recent genuine concerns and agitations by Nigerians by the excessive use of force, in some cases extra-judicial killings and wrongful conduct by men of the Nigerian Police Force.
“The disbanding of SARS is only the first step in our commitment to extensive police reforms 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.
“We will ensure that the officers responsible for wrongful deaths are brought to justice
“We also deeply regret the death of the young man in Oyo State during the recent demonstrations. I have ordered that the circumstances of his death should be thoroughly investigated.
“Meanwhile it is important to recognise that the vast majority of men and women in the police force are hardworking and diligent in performing their duties.
“The few bad eggs should not be allowed to tarnish the image and the reputation of the force.”
Meanwhile, #EndSARS protesters in the Surulere area of Lagos State have taken to the station to protest the killing of a protester in the area.
Jameela News reported that a protester was shot dead while protesting on Monday, October 12.
The witness who confirmed the death of the protester, confirmed the killing on the microblogging site, Twitter.
According to the witness, “We just lost a Nigerian to a gunshot, at the Surulere protest.
“The medical team did their best to keep him alive. The young Nigerian also put up a good fight.
“Unfortunately, he couldn’t make it.”
