24 hours after the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu in a live broadcast on Sunday afternoon announced that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad unit of the Nigerian Police has been abolish with immediate effect, Nigerians were still not satisfied with the announcement, insisting that president Mohammadu Buhari should address the nation officially on the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad unit of the Nigerian Police Force as well as sign an executive order to seal the disbandment because similar promises of reforming the police department in the past have failed.

Recalled that thousands of Youths across the country took to the street over the week to protest against police brutality and demand the complete abolition of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) using the #EndSARS hashtag online to share stories alleging extortion, torture, disappearances and even murders at the hands of SARS personnel. Aggrieved Lagosians protesters on Monday blocked the Lekki tollgate section of the Lekki-Epe Expressway as they were not satisfied with the disbanding of SARS, calling on the government to end SARS completely and not create a new policing arrangement to replace the now-defunct SARS, arguing that deploying the same officers to other units in the force will mean that the assault on the youths will not stop, as it’ll just be in a different form.

“End SARS now, not deployment,” the protesters chanted as they blocked the toll gate, preventing commuters from going through.
