You’re not catching armed robbers, you’re killing bullying and stealing from innocent young people. SARS IS THE REAL ARMED ROBBER!!

This Is Getting Worse Everyday 😢.
Promising Youths Lives Been Cut Short😢
Why Should We Be Living In Fear?
Why Should We Be Scared To Move Freely?
Why Must Our Peers Return Home And The First Question We Ask Is “POLICE DEY ROAD” ?
“YOU SEE POLICE”? WHY ? 🤦🏾♂️#EndSARS

How many more innocents people must SARS/the police kill before urgent steps are taken to completely overhaul and reform the entire police force? Obviously government and their families are safe is why they are nonchalant and indifferent.

this country, mehn. 💔 can’t believe we’re back to this again. the Nigerian Police needs a complete reform, and the SARS program should be scrapped. innocent Nigerian lives lost everyday, it makes no sense.

the way things never get better in this country doesn’t fill me with any confidence about Sars, every day I’m stopped, searched, then extorted. Now in the back of my mind i have to always carry Sars money. Sigh

Nigerian youths are the most hardworking, creative and peace loving people I know but our government should not take it for granted. #ENDSars
