‘Sega Tron’ Movement Created… As #SegaTron Tops Nigeria Twitter Trend.

Nigerians have taken to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to heap praises on the convener of #EndSARS campaign, Segun Awosanya, creating a new movement tagged “Sega Tron” in the process.

Naija News reports that #EndSARS campaign is a coalition of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO), involved in the current citizens’ push for the reform of the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, more particularly the agitation for the scrapping of the Special Anti-robbery Squad, SARS.

This online news platform understands that since the #EndSARS campaign was initiated, Awosanya popularly known as Segalink has been identified by some Nigerians as the “saviour” of the youths especially in the hands of “trigger happy” security officials.

Earlier this month, Segalink vowed that Kolade Johnson,  a football fan, who was shot dead by policemen from the Anti-Cultism Unit (SARS) of Lagos State Command, “will not die in vain”.

Few days after the incident the officers who shot the football fan were aprehended and paraded by the police.

Ever since Johnson’s death, Segalink and his team including Abdul Mahmud (#EndSARS Lead Attorney), Olúyẹmí Fásípè (Ondo State Ambassador, Social Intervention Advocacy Foundation (SIAF)) amongst others, have intervened in series of clashes between officers of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and Nigerians.

Apparently pleased with his efforts and works so fars in the countrty, Nigerians on Saturday, took to Twitter to praise Sega, creating a new movement known as “Sega Tron” in the process.
