The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) is a unit of the Nigerian Police Force, which was formed in 1992. As the years have rolled by it has brought so much pain with stealings, murdering, robbery, harassment, kidnapping, assault etc. You can’t even make sense out of this even if you tried to.
It is so pathetic and exhausting that we are experiencing this, in our own country by the people that are supposed to protect us.
Years have passed by and different people have come out to tell their various stories on how it has affected them or their loved ones.
Read here 👉🏾 Stories of people who Sars have victimized.
Recently, protest has been taking place in States in Nigeria and even the world at large
To call on the Nigerian government to End Sars completely.
Unfortunately, ”they have said” to have ended it a couple of times now but sadly it is still the same brutality and it gets worse every time.
Now we don’t want mere words but actions to back it all up.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
If you meet 10 Nigerians randomly, 8 out of the 10 has a Sars story to say, if not all the 10.
• Create Awareness in any and every way possible and go to a protest if there’s any near you. Walk with someone or a group of people so you’re not alone, take your face masks, sanitizer, power bank along. Make sure you share your location with someone, a friend or a family member.
• Social Media – If not that, you can also create awareness on social media with the hashtag #ENDSARS #SARSMUSTEND, #ENDPOLICEBRUTALITYINNIGERIA #ENDSWAT #ENDSARSOPPRESSION it’s never too much.
• Sign the petition here >> https://t.co/orpO3vAxbc
• Donations, if you go through social media especially on Twitter there are so many ways you can help, you can also donate money to help with the protest and also families who have been affected by sars and police brutality.
A 21 year old Jimoh Isiaq was killed by the police last week Saturday, 10/10/20.
These are just the names we could account for, there are so many more that their family members have come to say they left home and did not come back, so many people who are in prison for absolutely nothing no access to reach their families and so they accepted fate.
• You can offer to be someone’s emergency contact
• Call for help – In case you know or have anyone that has been arrested based on this peaceful protest, reach out to @fkabudu, @Mochievous, @adetolaov on Twitter.
There’s also a helpline now
Please don’t wait until it affects you or someone you know, it’s the little things we do that make the big difference.
Just like Aisha Yesufu said No Nigerian is more Nigerian than any Nigerian.
We are all in this together.
We Cannot Give Up, Not Now, Not Ever!
I want a Nigeria where we are truly the giants of Africa. I don’t want a Nigeria in extreme poverty!!! I want a Nigeria, where we don’t have Sars or policemen killing, extorting brutalizing or kidnapping us.
A Nigeria that we will want to live in not just fantasize about leaving.
A Nigeria where there is equality for all regardless of age, gender, class, religion.
