 Nigerians might just be on their way to heaving a sigh of relief as they are set to achieve something great through social media campaign.

The #ENDSARS campaign has been branded ‘politically motivated’ and the police claim criminals are behind the campaign but it appears the world is watching. The trending issue featured on BBC and below is how they reported it…

An online campaign against police brutality has gone viral in Nigeria.

The hashtag #EndSARS started trending over the weekend after a post claiming a young man was shot by the police’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad, known as Sars.

On Saturday, a user with the handle @YabaKid claimed to have seen officers from the Special Anti-Robbery Squad shoot a boy in the head in front of him.

The user had been tweeting with the hashtag #EndSARS for many months but in the past few days thousands of others have responded with their own stories of police brutality.

Many claimed to have been held at gunpoint, arrested without charge, forced to pay bribes and even shot by officers from the unit.

Well-known musician Simi claimed she and a group of friends were held at gunpoint by SARSofficers for – as she put it – “laughing”.

Thousands of Twitter users are now calling for the unit to be disbanded.

In response to the campaign, the inspector general of police said he had ordered a complete re-organisation of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

He also called for an “instant investigation” into all the allegations and complaints levelled against the unit.
