Reflecting on End SARS: A Never-Ending Quest for Justice


Historically, events that ignite the collective consciousness of societies and confront brutalities of injustice have left an indelible mark. The End SARS protest is one of such historical occurrence in Nigeria – a bold defiance by ordinary citizens seeking justice through collective action.

It began in October 2020, as Nigerian youths took to the streets, demanding an end to police brutality, specifically targeting the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). The protests, born out of pain, anguish, and frustration, quickly grew into a nationwide movement.

What made this protest unique was the indomitable spirit of the young activists who refused to be silenced. Pioneers like Feyikemi Abudu, Aisha Yesufu, Rinu Oduala, Oduala’s co-youth activists like Eromosele Adene, and Bolatito Oduala, amongst others, became prominent figures associated with this pursuit for justice.

Their unwavering commitment amplified the movement’s message, playing essential roles. One year, two years, and now, in the years to come, the End SARS protest will remain etched in our collective memory.

It is a poignant reminder of the human spirit’s unwavering capacity to resist oppression and injustice. Those who participated in the movement, including brave souls like Jimoh Isiaka, who tragically lost their lives, stood tall, demanding justice and accountability.

However, amidst the unity and passion surrounding the protests, the world witnessed the shocking violent attacks on peaceful protesters. Lives were lost, dreams dismantled, but the determination remained undeterred.

The movement crossed national boundaries, synergizing with people around the globe standing in solidarity with the Nigerian youth.

The End SARS protest remembrance is a solemn occasion to honor those who made sacrifices, such as Jimoh Isiaka, and to renew the commitment to fighting injustice. It’s an emotional journey that reflects not only the pain of the past but the hope for a better future.

The movement serves as a testament to the power of grassroots activism, of ordinary individuals coming together to make their voices heard.

As we remember the End SARS protest, we must also reflect on the progress made since that pivotal moment. Accountability has started to take root, and reforms are underway.

However, there is much work left to do. The memory of End SARS urges us to keep pushing for a more just and equitable society, not just in Nigeria but around the world.

In this remembrance, we find strength in the unity of purpose, comfort in the knowledge that change is possible, and the determination to continue the fight for justice.

he End SARS movement is not just a chapter in history but an enduring testament to the unyielding spirit of those who refused to be silenced.

In the years to come, the End SARS protest remembrance will serve as a beacon, guiding us in our pursuit of justice and reminding us that even in the darkest of times, there is hope, there is resilience, and there is the enduring power of the people.
