Twitter Users React To Extra-Judicial Killings By Police During Protest Over Killed Remo Star Football Player In Sagamu
Twitter users are reacting to the extra-judicial killing of at least three protesters by police officers during protest against the alleged killing of Tiamiyu Kazeem, a football player for Remo Star in Sagamu, Ogun state by members of Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS).
Angry youths of Akarigbo area of Remo, Ogun state took to the streets on February 24 to express their displeasure over the killing of a footballer by operatives of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) on February 22.
The protest however, became bloody when three persons were hit by bullets fired by policemen to disperse the crowd. The protesters, in turn, retaliated by pelting the law enforcement officials with stones.

This #EndSARS conversation can not be swept under the carpet. It has to happen. Things have to be done. These monsters have to go! This senseless killing has to be put to an end. Let’s not relent. SARS is worse than Coronavirus.— B h a d o o s k y (@BhadmusAkeem) February 24, 2020
SARS; a police unit created to protect the people has instead become a danger to society, torturing its victims with complete impunity while fomenting a toxic climate of fear and corruption. #EndSARS #Sagamu— Amnesty Int. Nigeria (@AmnestyNigeria) February 24, 2020

What’s happening in Sagamu and other parts of the country on this #EndSARS trend is sad.— Frank Donga™ (@frankdonga_) February 24, 2020
Impunity, lack of integrity & accountability by leaders and institutions is a threat to democracy. Are we really progressing? 💔💔
If Nigerian youths are really serious about ending SARS brutality, they should ensure that no SARS officer sleeps at home tonight, especially in Sagamu. Take the battle to their homes. #EndSARS— Dr Ayeni Official (@Adamsayeni) February 24, 2020
If the Nigerian Police can lie after video evidence, if the EFCC can lie after video evidence….. then how can we trust their investigations and words. #EndSARS— the Morris Monye factor (@Morris_Monye) February 24, 2020
