Protest turns violent as police arrest, disperse protesters with gunshots in Osun


The mobile police officers in Osogbo have dispersed some youths protesting against brutality and extortion by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Response Squad (SARS).

The police officers stationed at Olaiya Junction allegedly shoot sporadically in the air to disperse the protesting youths.

The arrest of the two protesters almost led to violence as other protesters stormed the base of the police where their APC vehicle was packed demanding for the release of their colleagues.

The policemen also seized placards and allegedly arrested two of the protesters.

Some of the inscriptions on the placards read, #Endsars, ‘Nigeria police stop killing us’, and ‘say no to brutal injustice’, ‘stop killing Nigerian Youths’, We are not animal, stop killing us’, among others.

The protesters were seeking the dissolution of the SARS unit of Nigeria Police Force over cases of killings, harassment and extortion by its personnel.
