SARS Protest Continues In France As Negoboy and Ci-Mi Team Up

Two prominent Nigerian musicians in France, Negoboi and C-Mi, joined dozens of their compatriots in a European country Saturday morning to take to the streets to demand an end to police brutality and justice for victims of rights abuses by the disbanded anti-robbery group attack by the Nigerian police.

The event, which is currently taking place at the famous Eiffel Tower in the heart of Paris, the capital of France, is attended by other Nigerian artists from a European country.

According to the participant, Mr. Olorunfemi Deji, who spoke to the Sahara Reporter, they are calling not only for the elimination of SARS and the dissolution of the newly formed Special Arms and Tactics Unit by the police authorities, but also for better governance in Nigeria. …

He said: “We are protesting against #EndSARS, #EndSWAT, #Endpolicebrutality, #ReformNigeriaPolice, #FixNigeria, #Fixthealthcaresystem.

“Nigeria is currently in turmoil, we are unhappy with this, and so we went out to support the country’s demands for full reform. This is outside the scope of #EndSARS. “

On Friday, protesters outside the Nigerian embassy in the Victor Hugo neighborhood in Paris called on Police Inspector General Mohammed Adama to step down immediately due to oversight of a failed police agency.

They also called for the resignation of President Muhammad Bukhari due to the country’s insecurity and the poor state of Nigeria’s economy, resulting in massive job losses for citizens.

In response to protests currently taking place in several cities across Nigeria and beyond, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Friday apologized for the government’s failure to address these issues much earlier.

He said, “Dear Nigerians, I know that many of you are angry and understandably so. We could move faster and we regret it.

“I perfectly understand how many young people they feel. Many people think that we have been too quiet and just haven’t done enough. These feelings of frustration are justified.

“Too many people have been mistreated by the police and this is unacceptable. We must take responsibility to protect young people, even sometimes those who are paid to protect them.
