The renewed protests against SARS had begun on Saturday after a video showing a man allegedly gunned down in Delta by operatives of the police unit went viral.

As a result of this, Mohammed Adamu, inspector-general of police (IGP), had banned SARS from undertaking routine patrols and search duties.

Public figures also called for protest using the ‘EndSARS’ hashtag, with Runtown volunteering to lead a march against police brutality at the Lekki toll gate on October 8.
