Despite the call by the Inspector General of police, Ibrahim Idris, for an immediate reorganisation of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Nigerians insist that it should be scrapped.
The Hashtag, #EndSARS gained momentum on the social media on Sunday, when Nigerians took to Twitter to protest ill-treatment, abuse and harassment by operatives of the SARS.
Although, the IGP has called for the SARS to be restructured, the #EndSARS continues to trend. Nigerians still demand the scrapping of the SARS.
See some of the tweets:
There’s no need for any re organization,All Nigerians want is to #EndSars

Don't let the press release that the I.G of Police has ordered the reorganization of SARS fool you.
This same I.G. ordered the dismantling or road blocks by the Police months ago but the Police is still operating road blocks!
Don't stop this advocacy. DO NOT STOP.#EndSARS.
