Nigerians launch #EndSARS campaign on Twitter

Nigerians have launched an #EndSARS campaign on Twitter, detailing atrocities committed by the Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad and called for its scrapping.

The #EndSARS campaign as at 2pm was number one on Twitter.

It was immediately followed by over 400,000 tweets on the Police themselves.

In posts after posts, Nigerians recounted horrible, harrowing encounters with SARS, the dreaded squad  of the police, set up to fight banditry.

Often, the men went off course to torment innocent Nigerians.

Meanwhile, as the Twitter storm raged, the police hurriedly announced emergency lines for public complaints, according to a post by Channels TV.
