Unlike Before, now is the time to stand together as one and to address the situation that has long held us by the neck. This movement against the common enemy-the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) affects every single Nigerian home and abroad, regardless of your tribe, religion and background.
Prior to this day, the endless attempts to reach out to the authorities about the painful brutality this formation of the Nigerian police has caused never made it to change! Nigerian Youths have once again come together to demand that their voices be heard as they have staged protests across the country.
We also know that in time past after such protests, responses assuring the Nigerian people that this part of the police #Sars and police brutality would stop came from the leaders but never happened. Now is the time to stand and make a decision if you will allow history repeat it self. No doubt the egg cracker was the brutality of the police towards innocent citizens, which lead to many dead, but this time it does not end there. A country As big as Nigeria Deserves steady electricity, Good road, jobs, and good salary for these jobs that are created even that of the police force.

While in the protest be respectful to everyone around you and be your brothers keeper, alone we fall but together we can sweep this menace away from our precious nation.
