Nigerian Army threatens decisive action against “subversive elements, trouble makers”

Protests turned violent in Abuja and Lagos Wednesday after pro-SARS demonstrators clashed with anti-SARS protesters.

Amidst the nationwide #EndSARS protest, the Nigerian Army has threatened to deal decisively with “subversive elements” and “trouble makers”.

In a statement Thursday morning, the spokesperson for the Army, Sagir Musa, said the force is ready to “fully support the civil authority in whatever capacity to maintain law and order and deal with any situation decisively.”

The statement comes as protests against gross human rights abuses by a dreaded police unit, Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), is spreading across the country.

In response to the demonstration, the government disbanded the SARS and promised comprehensive police reform.

But those actions have failed to pacify the #EndSARS protesters who have continued to pour into the streets saying the measures taken by government were not far-reaching enough.https://tpc.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html
