The #EndSARS protests have now entered its fifth day.
Across the country, protesters remain determined to put an end to all forms of brutality, which the rogue police force has taken a liking to. Now, these officers are responding to protests against police brutality with even more brutality and audacious disregard for human rights or lives.
On Saturday, October 10 2020, the police violently killed Jimoh Isiaq when they opened fire on peaceful protesters at Ogbomosho, a town in Oyo State.

At the time of writing this, only two people have been released.
