Many other states including Delta, Imo have also witnessed #EndSARS demonstrations, as calls for an end of the police unit continue to heat up.

Protests and campaigns calling for the proscription of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) over alleged harassment and extrajudicial killing of the citizens have entered its second day in various cities across the country.

The renewed protests against SARS started gaining momentum on Saturday after a video showing a man allegedly gunned down in Delta by operatives of the police unit went viral.

EndSARS protests are also going on in Abuja.

Some of the protesters had, on Thursday, stormed the premises of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) headquarters at the nation’s capital to air their grievances.

The demonstrators, led by Omoyele Sowore, founder of the #RevolutionNow movement, as well as Deji Adeyanju and Aisha Yesufu, had insisted on meeting with Mohammed Adamu, the inspector-general of police (IGP).

Noble Reporters Media earlier reported how the IGP banned SARS from undertaking routine patrols and search duties after victims began to speak up about their experiences with officials of the unit.
