“It is disheartening that the very individuals entrusted to protect us have become trigger happy, bloodthirsty extortionists. We call on the IGP of the police to take swift action to #ENDSARS.” -CDD
Center for Democracy and Development (CDD) West Africa has joined rest of Nigerian protesters to unequivocally condemn the brutality, extortion, murder and rape that the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) has consistently inflicted on the Nigerian youth.
According to a press statement signed and issued by the Executive Director of the organisation, Hassan Idayat, “We call for the immediate dissolution of SARS and for investigations and punitive action to be taken against offending officers.”
“It is disheartening that the very individuals entrusted to protect us have become trigger happy, bloodthirsty extortionists. We call on the Inspector General of the Police to take swift action to #ENDSARS.”
“We call on President Muhammad Buhari, who has been silent on this issue to perform his responsibility as the leader of this country — and respond to the youth who constitute over 50% of the voting populace who elected him.’
The youth have spoken, and you must listen to them Inspector General of Police, Governors, Legislators, and President Buhari. “
#ENDSARS protests cannot be ignored. This is a democracy; there is ZERO room for police brutality.
