Hundreds of #ENDSARS protesters on Monday morning blocked Lekki-Epe Expressway in Lagos, demanding the release of demonstrators arrested by the police during four days of marches across Nigeria.

The protests, which claimed about seven lives owing to the brutal crackdown by policemen on the demonstrators, led to the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police by President Muhammadu Buhari

 

The scrapping of the dreaded squad, which has been blan d for extra-judicial killings, extortion and unlawful seizure of suspects’ cars and financial assets, was announced on Sunday in Abuja by the Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu.
