Despite the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force, #EndSARS protesters on Monday morning, had hit the Lekki Toll Gate section of the Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos State, to resume protests.
This new development, however, led to early morning gridlock.
The news of disbandment of SARS by the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, on Sunday afternoon, was not satisfying to the protesters, as they demand the police authorities to carry out psychological evaluation and re-training of all disbanded SARS officers before they are redeployed.
They also demand the release of all arrested protesters, justice for all deceased victims of police brutality and appropriate compensation for their families.
They insist on increased salaries for police officers as well as the establishment of an independent body to oversee the investigation and prosecution of all reports of police misconduct within 10 days.
This came after Adamu said a new policing arrangement to replace the now-defunct police unit would be announced “in due course”, adding that all officers of the disbanded SARS have been redeployed with “immediate effect”.
