The nation-wide march against police brutality has entered the tenth day with no sign of an end
On Thursday, the Federal Capital Territory FCT commitee on Security banned further protest in the Abuja beginning from Today (Friday), but the protesters who defied the scotching heat and rain, simply declared the ban on protest a nullity as they filed out again Friday morning peacefully marching on to seek attention from establishments that would speedily facilitate their demands.
Protesters comprising young men and women are demonstrating against police brutality and demanding major reforms for effective policing
The protests have yielded some gains as the federal government has ordered a Judicial panels of inquiry to receive and investigate complaints of police brutality and extra Judicial killings in all the States as quickly as possible
States like Anambra have also met demands of protesters as Governor Obiano has relieved the much dreaded Senior Special Adviser on Security and former SARS Commander,James Nwafor while he assured that all protesters arrested would be released.
However, the protesters seemed not to be moved by that or the repentant police resolve of protecting lives and property as more demands are being made
One of the PSquare brothers,Peter had on Thursday in Lagos,gingered the protesters into action when he said the government has messed with the wrong generation.And from the look of things no one is in doubt that the present generation has indeed come of age and cannot be toyed with.
