Thousands of protesters, on Friday night, held candlelight procession in honour of Nigerians who have died due to brutality of men of the Nigeria Police Force.
Youths in Lagos State and Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, participated in the procession.
Those in Lagos converged at the Alausa Secretariat, Ikeja and the Lekki tollgate to hold a candlelight procession in honour of those who have died due to police brutality.
Protesters in Abuja held their procession at the Unity Fountain.
They started the session with Christians and Muslims praying for the souls of those that have been killed by police operatives.
They also placed the pictures of some of the victims at the scene to honour them.
Nigerian youths have barricaded major roads across the country to drive home their demand to dissolve the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the police force accused of brutality and extra-judicial killings.
Despite the dissolution of the notorious unit by the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, the protesters have not ceased their protests.
They are demanding the total reformation of the force and justice for victims of police.
Since the commencement of the protest, not less than ten persons have died in the hands of police or thugs.
Notably among them was Jimoh Isiaq, a peaceful protester, who was shot dead during a protest in Ogbomoso, Oyo State.
