Police officers on Sunday morning used force to disperse peaceful protesters in the Nigerian capital, Abuja for demanding the Muhammadu Buhari government to disband the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.
The police fired teargas at the protesters, who were marching in the Nigerian capital, demanding the scrapping of the notorious police unit, FSARS, late Saturday, – the protesters were attacked in Abuja and in Oyo State leading to death of a protester.
On Sunday, the protesters gathered at the Unity Fountain from where they were marching to the Three-Arms zone when they were attacked by the police officers.

Many who knelt down as the police officers rained shots of teargas and water on them had their hands in the air, shouting “End SARS now” through the fog of smoke that covered the street.
Asides from suffering eyes and throat irritation as a result of the teargas fired, the protesters were physically assaulted, leaving many injured as they scampered for safety.
