#EndSARS protesters return to streets in Osogbo

Youths protesting against the brutality and extrajudicial killings by men of the now-disbanded Special Anti Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force on Tuesday returned to the streets in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.

The protesters blocked the ever-busy Olaiya axis and other major roads in the state, causing gridlock as commuters and motorists were on a standstill.

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had on Sunday announced the dissolution of the much-dreaded police unit after days of agitation across the country.

However, the protesters are not satisfied with the announcement. They want, amongst other things, the release of arrested protesters as well as a total overhaul of the Police Force.
