“We want SARS to End!” #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG SARS has ended! STS & IRT shutdown across Nigeria & restricted to Abuja. Cases against them are being looked into & data on the complaints since 2015 to 2019 will be released shortly. The issue here has factual & historical reality.
The demands by our fellow citizens, triggered by the culture of impunity are legitimate. Suffice to say that there is a Just Cause. But before we delve into this, the Advocacy believes the leaderless Protest need to get better understanding of the extent of dialogue for context.
NOTHING can be achieved without Legal framework & proper appropriation, so this informs the need for national orientation on monitoring of the implementation of these laws. NHRC 2010 (in need of a governing council), ACJA 2015, Anti Torture Act 2017, Police Act 2020 & PTF 2018.
I read this document as circulated and I must say there are too many gaps in understanding of the work done in the past 3years. The conversation has gone beyond this and it is not as simplistic as portrayed in the document here. The issues were mischaracterized.
The problem is deeper than criminal mal-administration of Nigeria at all levels. It is about institutional gaps leading to years of dereliction. You need to know how things work to proffer solutions lest we suggest amiss. Nigeria Police is as much a victim as the citizenry.
Institutional Vandalism and emasculation of leadership, militarization of policing for regime security as against national security, delay of legislation towards reforms, paucity of funds, misunderstanding of the philosophy of community & intelligence led policing etc
This hostage situation must come to an abrupt end now. Ask leaders like; Yinka Odumakin, Goke Coker, Opeyemi Bamidele etc during the protest against FELA’s incarceration and austerity measures (ESSENCO) in May, 1985. It wasn’t funny same President.
Ready to help. I forgive you all and ready to help. The longer things escalated the more difficult it becomes. Fractures within your lines are imminent as things get dragged further. Understand the nature of power, what it does and how it works. You can do this. 🙏🏽

We have toyed with ourselves enough and it’s time to protect the vulnerable in society from the impending danger that looms. #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG is a struggle for all of us and both the Advocacy & citizen protest groups must align for the good of our Nation. Image
Freedom of assembly and speech cum the sanctity of life must be sacrosanct going forward. I implore the @PoliceNG to stand down from the offensive and protect the protesters at this point. The action of the hoodlums must be separated from the peaceful protest. #EndSARS
I’m happy our fellow citizens have outlined in an easy format the minimum condition for the protest to abate in the interim for monitoring the implementation. This is helpful and I MUST commend their efforts thus far in bringing the dialogue to this level of awareness. #EndSARS ImageImage

The #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG movement and Advocacy lives on.until our police is fully reformed to mirror global standards and best practices. Image
We remain eternally vigilant and will forever expose those acting in concerted manner to incite the public against persons and the integrity of the state.
The rights to protest remains constitutionally reinforced but this must not inconvenience other Nigerians going about their individual endeavors.

For years, leaders of thought have tried to engage the younger generation on the need to take responsibility. Revolution begins in the mind of the individual & not necessary proven by the size or aggression of the mob. The display of discontent is never enough however cinematic.
This is your part in the ensemble. We have collectively achieved the objective #EndSARs and the end goal #ReformPoliceNG is in gear (for this is a process), with legislative framework in place. You’re right that the pent up anger due to Govt’s negligence is beyond Police Impunity
Over the years I have mentioned severally that we are all that we have. There is no vertically collectivism with the Advocacy. Our roles have been cut out for us all. This is your own means of communicating your legitimate concern. Don’t let them miss the core message.

Several opportunities were blown over the years despite clear warnings about a time such as this. Govt ignored all the signs and labeled watchers of the wall with unprintable names via their hirelings. Today, reality bites. Unfortunately, our youth are too angry to be strategic.
Govt MUST show restraint regardless. These are our citizens & the future of our nation. My heart bleeds for them & our leaders must navigate this as parents. I’ve said many times that Trust is the only currency of the global connection economy. Engage them.
No logical sense can be made when emotions are high. The clearest language now will be action and not words. I will also implore our youth our there to also embrace restraint and avoid becoming all that they’ve criticized. Don’t punish your fellow citizens just to get attention.

I believe it’s best I state categorically that the #EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG Advocacy/Movement is clearly different from the youth PROTEST playing before our eyes, which started as an organic expression of discontent until other agenda crept in. I won’t be participating here. 🙏🏽
Our teeming youth are assured of the continuous intervention of @SIAF_NG as done in the past 3years regardless. While looking forward to future national/sub-national engagement in a multi-year strategy since 2016, to reinforce policings original goals and standards, including...
...welfare, we must reinforce, with unmistakeable clarity, that @SIAF_NG (#EndSARS #ReformPoliceNG) is a registered non-profit with clearly stated objectives, totally independent of, and unconnected to, the youth-led protests sweeping the country.

Distinguished, an Advocacy like ours can’t be hijacked. It will outlive all of us. Your protest is your right but if you choose to commercialize it & exchange it for Jollof rice on the Highway, that choice, people like us will have to respect. Cheers
I may not agree with the opportunists exploiting your vulnerability but I will forever support your rights to express your discontent. All I am saying is that we shouldn’t inconvenience others and make things worse. People’s businesses are suffering as we dance on the precipice.
Trust me I understand. There’s so much despair and our youth have nothing to lose. Unfortunately, our authorities are using old tactics to engage a new generation that is far more exposed than their rulers. You can’t divide us with religion, politics and ethnicity like before.
