On Sunday, 4th October, the president of Marlians, Naira Marley, revealed that he will be leading an #ENDSARS protest in Lagos on Tuesday, October 6 2020.
Naira Marley wrote;
So on tuesday we got some sars coming out with us. The ones that claim to only come out for big operations and not the dirty works on road..they’re coming out to show support and to answer some questions, we also got some police officers and soldiers joining the protest.
However, the Nigeria Police Force took to their official twitter handle to reveal that they are working hand in hand with the Minister of Youth to ensure that the force is being reformed.
They also noted that in respect to the planned protest, the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Frank Mba, will be having a live Instagram video chat with Naira Marley at 11:00am to discuss the issues of SArS operations in the country.
The tweet read;
@officialnairam1 The Inspector General of Police wishes to inform Nigerian youths that their voices and complaints on the issues of unprofessional conducts by some SARS operatives have been heared very loudly and clearly.
The Force is irrevocably committed to changing these narratives and undertaking far-reaching reforms to reposition SARS and other Tactical Squads for better service delivery.
The Orders and restrictions on the operations of SARS and others already issued by the IGP are just the initial steps out of the many reforms planned for the Tactical Squads.
The Leadership of the NPF will work with the Ministry of Youth and other stakeholders, including Youth leaders, youth entrepreneurs, CSOs and others in formulating and implementing consensual reforms.
Today, Tuesday 6th October, 2020, by 11am, the Force PRO- DCP Frank Mba will be having a live instagram chat with Naira Marley to answer questions and discuss the concerns of young Nigerians on the issues of SARS operations and other burning issues. Please stay tuned.
