The Nationwide #EndSARS protest has gained global recognition as the protest was also trending on Twitter in the United States, the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Canada.
A tweet by @BBCAfrica also revealed that the trend was done globally, as Nigerians continued to demonstrate across the country amid violent clashes.
#EndSARS protest was reignited last week following the shooting of a youth reportedly in front of a hotel in Ughelli, Delta State, in broad daylight by some FSARS operatives who drove away his Lexus Jeep. The police have said the youth didn’t die.
Consequently, the Inspector general of Police, Mohammed Adamu, banned FSARS and other special tactical squads from carrying out routine stop and search.
However, Nigerians are of the opinion that the police authorities had the opportunities over the years to reform the dreaded police unit, but nothing was done.
Despite the Force’s call for calm, the protest raged on in several parts of the country, including Lagos, Osun, Oyo, Delta, Imo, with Nigerians abroad joining the demonstration.
