#EndSARS: Ibadan peaceful protest

#End SARS  the popular hash tag  is now seeing some serious physical protest unlike any other social media rants and tweets in time past, Ibadan residents stage a  peaceful rally today 11/12/2017 to show their pain and disapproval of the brutalization ,extortion and menacing of the SPECIAL ANTI-ROBBERY SQUARD known as SARS , the protest lasted for 5 hours starting from 9am till 2 pm, the protestants gathered at the front of University of Ibadan for about 40 mins before moving on to Sango, Premier Hotel Junction where they made a U-turn as led by the police force guiding them to keep everything under control, They proceeds to Awolowo and also branched at the secretariat but were not allowed to enter the secretariat, the governor in person of Isiaka Ajimobi didn’t attend to them in person but he sent his special Adviser on security to address the crowd, the protesters press on to Bodija where they block the two roads and address the market women and passer-by, during the walk from Awolowo to Bodija MITV came to interview them about the protest which they aired their pains as a major concern why they are holding the rally.

It was a nice and peaceful rally, to be honest I’m impressed that the youth can actually come out en masses to voice their concern as the tagged the rally “Oyo voice, voice of the voiceless” now if we can keep this going then we will have a better Nigeria in the nearest future, people will have the energy to protest for bad governance and corruption which is the order of the day.

So far the Inspector General of Police hasn’t make a laudable step to reform or endsars as the youth demands but with this protest happening and in many other part of the country, I’m sure the government will look into the issue and find a lasting solution to it with immediate effect.

Here are photos and videos recorded during the protest, kindly share this news to create awareness so adequate attention will be given to  this issue, God bless you as you do so.
