As Nigeria enters day 6 of the #SARSMUSTEND protests, more and more locations around the country are sprouting up as protest grounds with youths calling for more reinforcement from their friends, colleagues, and family to join the fight against police brutality and the reign of terror by SARS. Although it was announced by the Inspector General of Police that SARS had been disbanded, young Nigerians were not quick to jump on this frivolous promise as it has been done many times over the past few years since 2017.
This week, the protests continue because our demands have not been met by the Nigerian government yet and justice and peace are far from being served. We have continued to be brutalised and intimidated by the government, so we must continue to fight. To keep you updated with all the protests happening across Nigeria this week, we compiled a quick and easy list with all the locations of the #SARSMUSTEND protests taking place today. Look out for your part of town and come through in numbers, people!
