A video has emerged showing the moment #EndSARS protesters in Oshodi area of Lagos, “disgraced” Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party.
Naija News reports that protesting youths in Nigeria are agitating for the end to police brutalization and extrajudicial killings of Nigerians. The protesters have been on the streets for more than a week now, protesting the brutalities, humiliation, and extortion of Nigerians, especially the youths.
The protesters demanded an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a police unit under the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department headed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police Anthony Ogbizi, using a hashtag: #EndSARS.
On Sunday, October 11, 2020, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu disbanded SARS following a widespread protest from Nigerians worldwide.
However, since the announcement that SARS has been scrapped, the protesters have refused to leave the streets, which a Presidential Advisory Committee says might force the Federal Government to take drastic measures against the protesting youths.
On Monday, October 19, #EndSARS protesters protesting in Oshodi were heard chanting “Tinubu Ole” in Yoruba which translates to “Tinubu thief”, a situation which can best be described as an embarrassment to Tinubu, a two-time former governor of Lagos State, Nigeria’s commercial city.
Watch the video below…
The people really called Tinubu a thief 🗣️.
Happening live in Oshodi. #EndSARS
