Protesters calling for an end to the brutality suffered at the hands of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) are holding a candlelight vigil in honour of all those who have been killed by operatives of the unit and the police in general.

 

Following a protest which has lasted for a week and three days, the protesters gathered around various areas of the Lagos metropolis to mourn the death of friends, loved ones, and family members who met their cruel end at the hands of SARS officials.

At the different locations where the candlelight event is holding, prayers were said after which the demonstrators sang the National Anthem in respect of the country.

Lagos is not the only place where the candlelight ceremony is taking place, a similar event is taking place at the nation’s capital, Abuja, and in Port Harcourt.

Those who could not join the event physically have taken to social media in solidarity with the protesters on the ground.

Here are some tweets regarding the candlelight ceremony which is part of the #EndSARS protest aimed at not just seeing to the disbandment of SARS, but also bring justice for those who have suffered injustice at the hands of the police

To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.

Oh Lord!!! Arise and fight for us.

You hate injustice and you commanded us not to kill, Arise!

ON GOD! We lit candle lights in honor of the fallen heroes during our protest to #EndSARS May their souls rest in peace!! DON’T STOP  We will win this fight for you our Fallen Heroes.

Rest In Peace to all our fallen heroes✊ Couldn’t join the physical protest to show respect for all the departed souls but I couldn’t help but show my respect from home & light a candle for all departed souls.

Rest In Peace & in Power! #EndSARS #ENDBADGOVERNANCE #ReformTheNigerianPolice #NightOfAMillionLights pic.twitter.com/UUSo1wRkRZ
