#EndSars Trends On Twitter

Nigerians have renewed calls for the federal government to put an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a unit of the Nigeria Police Force.

Naija News reports the SARS is a special unit of the Police force created to deal with issues of robbery and stem such negative tides in the environment.

Specifically, SARS is a branch of the Nigeria Police Force under the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (FCIID). The squad deals with crimes associated with armed robbery, car snatching, and other crimes associated with firearms.

However, Nigerians have constantly shared stories of how the SARS operatives engage in unlawful arrest, high-handedness, humiliation, detention, and extortion of innocent members of the society.

An example that readily comes to mind is the case of Kolade Johnson, an innocent football fan that was shot to death in Lagos State.

This online medium has compiled some reactions from Nigerians after another citizen on Thursday, shared his experience in the hands of the SARS operatives in Port Harcourt.

See some reactions and renewed calls for an end to the unit:
