Endsars: Protesters Block Streets Roads in Calabar

Protesters in their number, including celebrities took over major streets in Calabar, Cross River State capital to protest against all forms of Police brutality, unprofessional conduct by some units in the police force.

Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu on Sunday disclosed that the unit (FSARS)has been dissolved but a lot of Nigerians are still in doubt that their disbanding was a charade and the move untrustworthy.
protest which started at about 10:00 am saw many residents of Calabar take to the street causing gridlock along most popular and commercial roads including Mary Slessor by Watt Market, Marian Road, IBB Way, Murtala Mohammed Highway, and others.

They further took the protest to the governor’s office, the Headquarters of the state police Command where they were addressed by the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Operations, Samuel Musa.

DCP Musa said that all was now under control following the directive of the IGP while pleading with the protesters to proceed peacefully and avoid breaching public peace as it will also be an infringement on the rights of other citizens.

However, President Muhammadu Buhari has addressed the Nation stressing his administration is committed to extensive police reforms.

“The disbanding of SARS is only the first step in our commitment to extensive police reforms in order to ensure that the primary duty of the police and other law enforcement agencies remains the protection of lives and livelihood of our people,” he said
