1001 reasons the Nigerian Government should #EndSARS NOW!

#EndSARS

It is hard to find someone in Nigeria who hasn’t experienced, witnessed or knows someone who has experienced/witnessed SARS brutality. While a lot of us knew ‘whatsup’, the menace became more evident when #EndSARS started trending on Twitter. A lot of other hitherto-quiet people shared stories of their travails in the hands of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad – people whose duty is to combat robbery and protect citizens. See some chilling stories of the evils these men (not) in uniform do.

Yesterday

They will kill you and nothing will happen

Prostitute and Yahoo boy

Your NYSC member status won’t save you

Celebrities are not spared

 

Sigh

My God

If this doesn’t infuriate you

Double tragedy

Did they actually shoot him?

This one happened today

No words

Amnesty International said this in 2016

That UNIPORT student

Betting is a crime – SARS

Fornication too

Having beards too

Watching football sef

Don’t drive a Venza

Thou shall not have foreign numbers

Collateral damage

The killing field in Anambra

No one is saying anything good about them

Special ADVANCED robbery squad

Many young men in Nigeria can relate

Ring Road, Benin

This broke me

They took his Tom-Tom too

Your ID card can’t save you

This entire thread

Sigh. There are more than a thousand and one stories like these, reasons SARS should be disbanded or their modus operandi reviewed. Just follow the hashtag #EndSARS and join the conversation.
