ENDSARS: Davido meets IGP over Police brutality

Nigerian singer, David Adeleke popularly known as Davido met with the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Muhammadu Adamu, over the ongoing EndSARS protests on Monday.

The protests are against human rights abuse by personnel of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the police.

The singer had earlier on Sunday morning joined other protesters on the streets of Abuja as the protests continued in parts of the country despite the announcement of the dissolution of the police unit.

On Monday afternoon, Davido raised the need for adequate training and psychological re-evaluation of members of the police unit with the IGP.

“The new Police Act which they just signed even before the #EndSARS protest emphasised psychological evaluation and re-training of officers.

“What we are saying is that the ones that commit these offences, charge them and those that did not, still re-train them,” Davido said in a crowded room with the IG.

At least three people have been killed by security operatives since last week when the EndSARs protests began across Nigeria. Over a dozen Nigerian youth have been reportedly killed by SARS officials in the past.
