Sunday, December 3, 2017- The Internet got a massive shake as young Nigerians share their experiences and encounters with the Nigerian Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

The Nigerian Government with a good motive created the Special Anti-Robbery Squad known as SARS to combat the robbery menace in the country, but the men deployed to undertake this objective have overshoot their limit and has caused the citizens to cry out for an END to SARS with the hashtag #ENDSARSNOW #ENDSARSBRUTALITY #ENDSARS.

According to OdeyPeter ODOO @odeyodo: “you don’t throw away the baby with the bath water. Let SARS be responsible for violent crimes and not vehicle inspection agents and laptops receipt versifiers. Once these petty distractions are taken from them, SARS would be more responsible”.

Reports have it that Citizens have been at the mercies of the Nigerian Special Anti-Robbery Squad, especially the younger generation. Many have died from the brutality carried out by the SARS men, while others have paid huge sum of money to bail themselves out of their cage.

A famous artist @adekunleGOLD and some others also made their voices heard on twitter when they twitted the following:

Trace Naija contributted to the campaign:

Responding to the cry of the citizens on SARS Brutality, the Nigeria Police PRO said those calling for the End of SARS may likely be Armed Robbers, but the citizens response to this claim triggers more investigations.

 

However, the Inspector-General of the Nigerian Police Force has called for a Re-Organization of the Nigeria Special Anti-Robbery Squad across the country.

The Nigerian Police Force hereby advises citizens to report any complaints about their contact with SARS via their twitter handles

They don’t need to know their names, all they need citizens to provide are details of the occurrence (action/act) with DATE, TIME & PLACE.
