Amid ongoing nationwide outrage and protest against SARS brutality, a petition to the U.S government seeking a visa ban on Nigerian public office holders and police officers has been handed a vital boost.
According to Channels TV, the petition, which began on Friday, October 9, by Farida Adamu, has received momentum with over 10,0000 signatures already backing the request as of Sunday, October 11.
Legit.ng notes that the petition is motivated by the US’ recent travel ban on some Nigerians politicians over their alleged involvement in electoral malpractices in the last general elections.
It would be recalled that the continuous killing and extortion by the police officers who belong to the SARS forced Nigerian to take to the streets and government areas to call the attention of the authority to the controversial police unit.
Social media has been awash with #EndSars hashtag peaking globally as Nigerians continue to demonstrate their displeasure against pronounced police brutality nationwide.
Although the inspector general of the police Mohammed Adamu, announced an end to the illegal “stop and search” of the police, protests against the controversial unit are ongoing across cities with #EndSars hashtag still on trends.
