The Nigerian man protesting against police brutality
A Nigerian man has revealed that operatives of the Special Anti-robbery Squad of the Nigeria police extorted money he wanted to use to marry from him.
He said this is the reason why he decided to join the nationwide #EndSARS protests in a placard he displayed during protest.
The protest which is gradually entering its second week, has been raging on as youths demand total reform of the Nigeria Police Force over cases of brutality, extortion, human rights violations and extra-judicial killings, especially by members of the now-defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.
During the protest, an unidentified man caught the attention of other Nigerians, both online and offline as he revealed that SARS officials collected the money meant for his wedding.
He was seen holding a placard with an inscription boldly written on it and, it read: “THEM COLLECT MY MARRIAGE MONEY #ENDSWAT.”
