Police bullets have reportedly ended the lives of two protesters on Monday during a protest in Surulere area of Lagos state.

This comes after roads in Lekki, Surulere and Allen Avenue in Lagos were shut down as protests calling for the reform of the police and the dissolution of SARS continued.

Twitter users cried out on the platform after police reportedly started shooting at peaceful protesters in Surulere.

The #EndSARS protest — which trended as number one globally on Twitter — was triggered by incessant cases of brutality.

Before now, there has been a series of protests across the country demanding the end of the police unit which is notorious for human rights violations.

Owing to the mass outrage, the IGP had banned operatives of SARS, the Special Tactical Squad (STS) and Intelligence Response Team (IRT) from undertaking routine patrols as well as stop and search duties.

But Nigerians were not pacified by this owing to similar promises of reforming the unit in the past which failed.

On Sunday, Mohammed Adamu, inspector-general of police (IGP), announced the disbandment of the police unit.

He said the operatives will be redeployed, and that a new policing arrangement will be set up to fill in the gaps.
