End Special Anti-Robbery Squad (End SARS) or #EndSARS is a social movement in Nigeria that started on Twitter calling for banning of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a unit of the Nigerian Police Force, a controversial division known for police oppression and brutality. The protests started as a social media campaign using the hashtag #ENDSARS to demand for the Nigerian Government to end the deployment of SARS. Within a weekend (9–11 October 2020), the #ENDSARS hashtag had up to 28 million tweets. Nigerians have shared both stories and video evidence of how members of SARS engaged in kidnapping, murder, theft, rape, torture, unlawful arrests, humiliation, unlawful detention, extrajudicial killings, and extortion in Nigeria.
SARS officers have been alleged to profile youth based on appearance, mount illegal road blocks, stop and search, arrest without warrant, rape women, extort young Nigerians for driving exotic vehicles and using iPhones. While some claimed victory as the Nigerian Police Force dissolved the Special Anti-Robbery Squad on Sunday, 11 October 2020, others noted similar promises had been made in recent years and the government planned to reassign SARS officers rather than remove them entirely. The government has continued to violently repress protests despite the announcement.. #End Sars Police Brutality in cities around the country started as a simple protest but turning brutal now.
