The End SARS protest in Nigeria has gone global since youth in the most populous back nation on earth took to the street last week calling for an end to police harassment and brutality by the men of the now disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad unit of the Nigeria Police.

Following the youth agitation across the country, the IGP announced the disbandment of the notorious police unit and also the formation of another unit 24-hour after.

Less than two days after the disbandment of SARS, the Inspector General of Police announced the formation of the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit to oversee special operations within the country.

Despite the disbandment of SARS, the youth have refused to leave the street as they are calling for the trial of SARS personnel that were involved in extrajudicial killings and extortion across the country.
