End SARS: Reno Omokri reacts as ICC opened an inquiry into recent protest in Nigeria
Reno Omokri, a pastor and former aide to Goodluck Jonathan reacts as the International Criminal Court opened an inquiry into the recent protests in Nigeria where scores of youths protesting against police brutality were killed and others injured last month.
“Did I not promise you guy?” Says Reno Omokri while reacting to the news.
Nigerians, mostly youth took to the street in their numbers for 12 days last month calling for the disbandment of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad Unit, SARS, and an end to police brutality.
At one of the venues of the protest, Lekki toll gate in Lagos, more than 12 peaceful protesters were allegedly killed at night by men in military camouflage.
The killing at Lekki toll gate has attracted global condemnation with international bodies and world leaders calling for a full-scale investigation into the killings which some described as a massacre.
The outcry has now drawn the attention of the International Criminal Court to the killings and human rights abuses ongoing in Nigeria.
Meanwhile, some state governors including Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, the epicenter of the protest has set up a panel of inquiry to address the youth’s agitation against police brutality.
The Inspector-General of Police also disbands the SARS unit and another tactical unit the Special Weapon and Tactics unit, SWAT, created to tackle serious internal security breaches.
