#EndPoliceBrutality: Nigerian youth make #5for5 demands of the government

by | Oct 12, 2020

For the past 3 years, the public outcry over brutality and extortion, carried out by ‘SARS’ police officers on Nigerian youth, continued to fall on deaf ears of the government.

Techpoint Africa maintains that there is no justification for such extrajudicial activities at the hands of those who are supposed to protect the citizenry.

This is why we stand with everyone, home and abroad, who participated in peaceful protests over the past week.

Techpoint Africa also endorses the #5for5 message which demands:

  • Immediate release of all arrested protesters
  • Justice for all deceased victims of police brutality and appropriate compensation for their families
  • Setting up an independent body to oversee the investigation & prosecution of all reports of police misconduct (within 10 days)
  • In line with the new Police Act, psychological evaluation & retraining (to be confirmed by an independent body) of all disbanded SARS officers before they can be redeployed
  • Increase police salary so that they are adequately compensated for protecting lives and property of citizens.
