A group named the New Nigerian Project, NNP has urged the Federal Government to respond to the demands made by #EndSARS protesters as soon as possible.

NNP recently revealed that expectations are very high right now and the people need their issues addressed once and for all.

According to the group, the violence has been very unnecessary because unity and mutual respect is needed right now if we do not want to worsen the problem at hand.

NNP added that anyone engaging in violence, arson, looting, and killing under the guise of the protests is simply making life difficult for Nigerians.

His words, “Let us remember Libya, Tunisia, Sudan, Iraq and even recently, Lebanon, just to mention a few countries which are all a shadow of what they used to be prior to the Arab Springs of 2011.

“A perilous and onerous approach to protest if left to fester among our teeming youth across the country could quickly dissolve into a dangerous situation that will leave a scar on our great country.

“Above anything else, we place the utmost importance on the sanctity of our unity as a country with a beautiful rainbow of diverse ethnicities under the geographical landmass called Nigeria.

“As a country and people, there is so much that has gone wrong for so long that needs to be addressed and very urgently, too. But change only comes with painstaking planning, patience, sacrifice, and commitment.

“We recognize and identify with the peaceful protests and protesters and their constitutional rights to protest.”

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) is a Nigerian Police Force unit under the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department headed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police Anthony Ogbizi. Since 2012, SARS has come under controversy for being linked to acts of extortion, torture, framing and blackmail.

The Special Anti-Robbery Squad was founded in 1992 by former police commissioner Simeon Danladi Midenda. The major reason SARS was formed was when Col. Rindam, a Nigerian Army Colonel was killed by police officers at a checkpoint in Lagos.

SARS is one of the 14 units in the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department which was established to detain, investigate and prosecute people involved in crimes like armed robbery, kidnapping and other forms of crimes.

During its formation the Special Anti-Robbery Squad was known to operate covertly. SARS operatives were not allowed to wear police uniform, publicly carry guns or have walkie-talkies. They were given unmarked vehicles with sometimes no license plates or private plate numbers during duty.
