All the details of the #EndSARSProtests happening around the world

Nigerians are demanding an end to police brutality and the tyrannical reign of one of its anti-robbery units, SARS. Over the past week, protests have swept across the country in response to the unlawful killing of a young Nigerian citizen in Ughelli, Delta State. From Lagos to Imo State, Nigerians, particularly the youth are decisively and audaciously calling for the disbandment of SARS and for nationwide police reform to curtail further killings and harassment of its citizens.

The #EndSARS hashtag has resurfaced yet again, but this time around, our voices are being amplified all over the world, with Nigerians in the diaspora who have joined arms in disrupting the news cycle and causing enough noise on social media to gain the attention of the Nigerian government and international media houses. As many states in the nation enter their fourth day of protests, Nigerians in the diaspora are busy scheduling ways to peacefully iterate the efforts of their comrades in the country.

A journalist in the US, Adenike (@Deenike) has created a new hashtag #EndSARSProtestsDiaspora to simplify the process for Nigerians in the diaspora to source information on joining the protests happening in their cities. Here is what you need to know about the protests being held in Europe and America this weekend.
