The ongoing #EndSARS and #EndSWAT campaign in Nigeria have taken another shape as citizens based in France on Friday, October 15 troop out to join fellow countrymen to demand an end to police brutality.
Naija News understands that Nigerian youths today stormed the Nigerian Embassy at the Victor Hugo area of Paris, capital of France, to condemn the continued assault on citizens by men of the Nigeria Police Force.
The youth demand an end to #PoliceBrutality and human rights abuses under President Muhammadu Buhari’s led government.
The protesters warned the force authorities and government against embezzlement of Police funds, noting that police officers must be fairly paid. According to them, bribery and extortions are not salary schemes, hence the need for a total reform of the Nigeria Police Force.
They asked the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to immediately resign his position for overseeing a failed law enforcement agency. Also, the patriotic citizens who based in France demanded the resignation of President Buhari over rising cases of killings, kidnappings and general insecurity in the country.
