The #EndSARS protesters resume demonstrations on Monday despite the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force.
Two ladies Treasure Chiamaka and Felicia Okpara were brutalized by officers of the Nigeria Police Force. The ladies were assaulted at the peaceful #EndSARS protest staged at Ojuelegba. They were dragged, beaten, and tortured in a way that is totally unacceptable and should never be tolerated.
However, lawyers are now on their way to the Area C police station to release the ladies.
The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, on Sunday afternoon, announced the disbandment of the controversial police unit after days of online and offline protests.
But the protesters on Monday want the authorities to carry out psychological evaluation and re-training of all disbanded SARS officers before they are redeployed.
They also demanded the release of all arrested protesters, justice for all deceased victims of police brutality, and appropriate compensation for their families.
The protesters also called for increased salaries for police officers and the establishment of an independent body to oversee the investigation and prosecution of all reports of police misconduct within 10 days.
