Dressed in black attires, the protesters marched through various streets of Awka to the Anambra State House of Assembly, the government house and blocked the Enugu-Onitsha expressway at Aroma junction, causing serious traffic gridlock in the city.

One of the organisers of the protest, Mr Ifeanyi George said, “We are here to let our voices be heard. Several times they have announced the disbandment of SARS, but this time we want to make sure the disbandment is for real.

“We are also asking for justice for people who lost their lives to the brutality of the SARS people, and we are asking for justice for them.

‘That placard that guy over there is holding is asking for the prosecution of James Nwafor. He was the SARS Commander in Anambra at one time and was alleged to have shot and killed a young man, asking his people to do their worse. We want people like this brought to book.’

‘We are not here for violence, but to register our grievances.’

At Aroma junction, the protesters sat on the expressway, raising their placards, while the leaders reeled out names of young people who allegedly met their end in the hands of SARS operatives.

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar had on Sunday announced the disbandment of SARS, but barely 48 hours after, he announced a replacement for the outfit; Special Weapon and Tactics team.
