End SARS: Youths Protest in Osun
Youth in Osun State have staged a protest against brutality and extra-judicial killings by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the police.
The protesters, who stormed the popular Olaiya junction in Osogbo carried placards with different inscriptions to register their grievances.
The spokesperson for the protesters, Mr Gbenga Olaleye said the protest became imperative in the face of brutality being faced by the youth.
Mr Olaleye noted that the youths could not trust the pronouncement of Nigeria police, saying the SARS had been banned in 2019 only to resurface after some months.
He said their demand was the dissolution of the SARS unit of the Nigeria Police Force over cases of killings, harassment and extortion by its personnel.
Mr olaleye maintained that the youths would continue to protest injustice and unlawful harassment.
