Several persons have been injured after hoodlums hijacked the SARSMustEnd protest in Abuja.
The protesters who were marching across major streets in the city on Wednesday were said to have been attacked by a group of pro-SARS youths.
This is coming about 24 hours after the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, set up a new unit called the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team, to replace the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Unit (SARS).
Prospective members of the new team are also expected to undergo a psychological and medical examination to ascertain their fitness and eligibility for the new assignment.
Despite the new developments, the protests have remained unabated as many Nigerians believe that a mere change of name is not the solution to the problem.
