Some Nigerians have reacted angrily to the incessant killings and brutality by Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, in the country after a young man was allegedly killed in Delta State.
Team of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police allegedly killed a young man on Saturday.
The incident occurred in front of Wetland Hotel, Ughelli in Delta State.
The operatives allegedly shot the citizen and left the scene in the victim’s vehicle – a white Lexus jeep.
Following the development, angry Nigerians took to social media to express their displeasure over the incessant killing of Nigerians youths by security personnel meant to be shielding the citizens from harm.
They also called on the Federal Government to scrap the agency or put an end to the continuous killings of innocent citizens by SARS operatives.
Here are some reactions gathered
@Ekene,” Until Southern Nigerian youths start treating SARS as criminals, which is what they are, they won’t stop the wanton killings, extortion & harassment. Until Southern youths imbibe the culture of street protests as a way of life, FG will never take your agitations serious.”
@Famezz,” Person go dey lock door coz of robbers and still dey fear police wey suppose dey protect us!”
@sallySuleiman,” Maybe if a politician’s child gets involved with SARS, our leaders will eventually EndSARS. The people who are supposed to protect the masses are the ones killing them while our leaders turn a blind eye. This is wickedness! How many more youths should die?”
@akeula,” Guys, if the federal government fails to scrap SARS, please I’m begging you not to stop applying for visas to leave this shithole county, run for your life!”
@Asiwajularry,” SARS has grown beyond protest and the government gives no sh*t about our cries. FORCE is the only response that can curb these societal menace. There should be a gun for everyone. You either kill me before I kill you.”
