Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react to the attacked launched on the #EndSARS protesters in Anambra by the police.
Recall NaijaNews reported earlier that as protesters marched to the headquarters of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) in Awkuzu, Anambra, today, gunshots allegedly by policemen could be heard.
Led by Chinedu Okoli, highlife maestro better known as Flavour; Chibuzor Nelson Azubuike, a rapper better known as Phyno, Kingsley Okonkwo, singer better known as Kcee, were chanting “End SARS! End SARS!” as they moved the massive crowd of protesters.
It was learnt that the protesters converged in Awka, the state capital, from where they moved to the disbanded SARS office to demand that they shut down, the facility.
However, they started to hear gunshots being fired by the police.
Meanwhile, Nigerians who wondered why the police still chose to attack despite warning from their boss, the Inspector-general of police, Mohammed Adamu, have taken to Twitter to react.

The governor is on it thanks to the fact he isn't on good terms with the CP— Chi_titan🔱, US marine (@chidondollars) October 16, 2020
Disbanded, disarmed SARS who were immediately replaced by SWAT are still shooting at peaceful protesters days after their IGP read an address to the nation outlawing them. I don't think we realise what it means that this is still happening. #EndSars— Babanla (@biolakazeem) October 16, 2020
