EndSARS

A court has released four EndSARs protesters arrested in Abuja.

The court on Monday discharged four out of six protesters arrested in November for demonstrating outside the National Assembly.

Last year, Africa’s most populous country was swept by weeks of widespread protests sparked by anger over brutality from the police’s loathed Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

The government disbanded the unit and pledged reforms but still struggled to contain the largest challenge to Nigeria’s governing elite in decades.

The six defendants were arrested on November 8, 2020 and charged with unlawful assembly.

Defence lawyer Henry Akwaji requested the case be dismissed because the prosecution team was absent from court on Monday.

The court agreed and dismissed the case due to a lack of diligent prosecution.

“Defendants, Olutosin Adeniji, Abdusalam Zubarur, Paul Akinwumi, and Devour Chomo are discharged and the complaint against them dismissed,” magistrate Musa Eneye ruled.

The remaining two, Yasidu Bashiru and Kabiru Garzali, were absent from court due to illness. The case against them was adjourned until March 24.
