Popular Nigerian rights activist, Aisha Yesufu, has said that the blood of innocent citizens killed by Nigerian security operatives during the End SARS protests will continue to haunt President Muhammadu Buhari, Newspremises reports. Nigerians, mostly the youth, had late last October, occupied major streets in the country, particularly in the Southern region, protesting against the now disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, a unit of the Nigeria Police Force. The protests later generated a call for the resignation of President Buhari; end of bad governance; demand for accountability by government officials, among other things. However, as it grew stronger, the protest was hijacked in different locations leading to the destruction of government assets and the attack of homes of some politicians. But the climax of the crisis that resulted from the protest was the shooting at Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos State, where soldiers were said to have killed many protesters. The Buhari government has insisted that no one died during the attack despite reports from local and international news media and video clips on social media saying otherwise. The Federal Government had also listed the nationwide demonstration against the notorious Police unit, SARS, as one its reasons for banning Twitter. Making a presentation to the House of Representatives Joint Investigative Committee on Twitter Suspension, Lai.

In his moment of rest he shall hear their wailing and the anguish of their families. #EndSars.”
