In other news, the EndSARS demonstration, according to publisher and human rights campaigner Omoyele Sowore, affected the Federal Executive Council’s decision to raise the pay of Nigeria Police Force members.
The FEC authorized a 20% raise for police officers on Wednesday, December 15.
Sowore reacted to this event by saying that police officers’ pay were raised because demonstrators campaigned for them. Despite their assistance, he claims, police officers continue to “attack nonviolent protestors.”

“In October 2020, an #EndSARS revolt visited Nigeria against Nigeria Police Force’s brutality, the same police were deployed alongside soldiers brutally to put down the rebellion.
Many protesters were killed and maimed by policemen across Nigeria, some protesters are still languishing in detention as I write.
Today, I was part of a peaceful #NorthIsBleeding protest to ask for the lawful protection of lives and property in the northern parts of Nigeria.
Again, policemen from Apo and Durumi police stations brutally assaulted peaceful protesters. They also hired thugs to attack me.
Five protesters are being held at the notorious ‘Abbattoir’ police cell in Apo area of the FCT.
I am telling this story because the brutal and inhuman Nigerian police force is today a beneficiary of the labour and sweat of the very victims of their vicious policing tactics. They got a salary raise because we fought for them, but look at the way they treat us on a daily basis! #RevolutionNow.”
