‘shoot Us’, Imo #ENDSARS Protester Screams At DPO Who Cocked Gun by GIdiata(m): 2:11am On Oct 09, 2020
One of the youths protesting for the scrapping of police
Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, on Thursday in Owerri,
Imo State, started shouting “Shoot us!” when a Division
Police Officer, DPO, cocked his gun and acted like he was
going to shoot.

Channels TV reported that the protesters had gathered
around the popular Imo State University Junction in Owerri,
bearing carrying placards with various inscriptions and
chanting solidarity songs.

However, officers of the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, were on
the ground to disperse the gathering and a DPO got into an
altercation with a protester.

As the argument became heated, the DPO whose name was
said to be Obioma Obi, cocked his gun and gestured like he
was going to shoot the protester, who began screaming
“shoot us!”.

After a short back and forth, reminisce of the anti-SARS
protests across the country, the Protesters Were Dispersed
With Heavy Teargas.

Reacting to the incident, the state Police Commissioner,
Isaac Akinmoyede, said in dispersing the crowd, the officers were only doing their job.

Akinmoyede told newsmen that the policemen were at the
venue of the protest to prevent any breakdown of law and
order in the state, as the actions of the protesters were already disturbing the free flow of traffic.

He, however, promised to take disciplinary actions against
Mr. Obi for pulling a gun on the protesters, stressing that the action of the DPO is not acceptable to the Nigerian Police.

He said the Force is meant to be civil to the members of
the public, adding that even though he was trying to shrug
off an intending mob action, the officer should have been
more civil.

any one who protests about ending SARS is not doing the right thing.
save your energy until you've been cheated out of the 2023 presidency. then you start protesting. by then the whole south will support you.
The revolution will come from there.

SARS shouldn't be allowed to carry out patrols and other stuffs. They should only be on duty when a robbery is been reported. Any SARS caught Abusing a citizen should he punished the assholes cant even face real armed robbers.

protest is legal in any part of the world exception of Nigeria where when you go for a peaceful protest your chances of coming back home is 50/50
