From Ogbomosho in Oyo to Surulere in Lagos to the nation’s capital and parts of many other states, protesters are calling for police reform and demanding an end to brutality.

For the fourth day running, #EndSARS has been among the top trends on social media.

The killing of a young man in Delta state and the brutalisation of another person in Lagos had triggered this unrest which made Mohammed Adamu, inspector-general of police, to dissolve the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) 48 hours after the youth trooped to the streets.

Refusing to back down, the protesters said dissolving of SARS is just one out of the demands that they have. They vowed not to leave the streets until all other demands are met.

Earlier on Tuesday, Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, announced that presidential panel on on the reform of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) had accepted the five-point demand of the #EndSARS protesters.

Below are the demands:

  • Immediate release of all arrested protesters
  • Justice for all deceased victims of police brutality and appropriate compensations for their families.
  • Setting up an independent body to oversee the investigation and prosecution of all reported police misconduct within a period of 10 days
  • Carrying out psychological evaluation and retaining of all disbanded SARS operatives before they can deployed (this should be verified by an independent body).
  • The government should increase police salary and they should adequately compensated for protecting lives and property of the citizens
