A large number of the protesters took to their social media pages in the early hours of Sunday to share pictures of their colleagues carrying placards and others sleeping in front of the assembly’s building.
The development is coming after Mr Macaroni, a comedian, had led other protesters to an all-night march at the assembly on Thursday.
It was noted that Mudashiru Obasa, the speaker, summoned an emergency meeting of the parliament to address the outrage trailing the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in the state. The renewed protests against SARS started on October 3 after a video showing a man allegedly gunned down in Delta by operatives of the police unit went viral.
Frank Mba spokesman of the police, had said SARS can’t be scrapped because of the ongoing fight against crimes in the country. “What we need to do is to reform SARS and make them responsive, responsible and make them to work in accordance with laid down procedures,” he said.
“We need them to continue to respond to violent crimes. We need them to continue to respond to armed robberies. We need them to continue to respond to kidnappings.”
