We’re Very Stubborn, Hot Blood That Runs In Wike, Runs In
Us –#ENDSARS Protester
Rivers state residents, Tuesday defied the order of Governor
Nyesome Wike, prohibiting them from embarking on

ENDSARS campaign in the state.

Many Nigerian youths were seen on the streets of Port-
Harcourt, campaigning against police brutality and
dehumanization of the masses.
Since Sunday, youths have been on the streets, protesting,
demanding an end to police brutality, extortion, assault,
intimidation and dissolution of the Special Anti-Robbery
Squad, SARS.
Bowing to their pressure, the Inspector General of Police,
Mohammed Adamu, disbanded the activities and operations
of the Police unit, SARS.
However, not satisfied with the disbandment, Nigerians
continued with the protest, urging the Federal government led
by President Muhammadu Buhari to “Immediately release all
arrested protesters, and grant justice for all deceased victims
of police brutality and appropriate compensation for their
They equally listed:
“Setting up an independent body to oversee the investigation
and prosecution of all reports of Police misconduct (within
10days), In line with police act, psychological evaluation and
retaining (to be confirmed by an independent body) of all
disbanded SARS officers before they can be redeployed, and
Increase Police salary so that they are adequately
compensated for protecting lives and property of citizens.
Not satisfied with these demands, Wike averred:
“The Rivers State Government hereby [wishes] to inform the
general public that all forms of protests have been banned
throughout the State.
“Therefore, all proposed protests under #EndSARS Campaign
are hereby prohibited.
“Government took this decision because the Inspector General
of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had already scrapped the
Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
Therefore, there is no need for any form of protest against a
Unit of the Police Force that no longer exists. “Parents and
Guardians are therefore advised to ensure that their children or
wards do not violate this order.
“Law enforcement agencies are also directed to ensure that
the ban is enforced and that violators are brought to book.”
Miffed by his comment, Rivers state residents stormed the
streets, demanding an end to Police brutality, assault and
other misdemeanors.
One of the protesters identified as Ébi Wali, said: “The hot
blood that runs in Wike, runs in every port harcourt breed, We
are very stubborn. We’d rather die in the fields than die
sleeping. Intimidation is our enemy. #SarsMustGoNow”.
