Youths in Ebonyi State, Tuesday staged a peaceful protest demanding an end to the operations of SARS and Justice to all those who have been victims of Police brutality in the State.

The protest was peaceful and orderly without any violence.

Vanguard gathered that the Youths marched from Presco junction to Udensi and rounded off at the Government House, Abakaliki.

The group was seen carrying placards with different inscriptions as they stressed that the call for the disbandment of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) was not enough.

They said they were also demanding an immediate release of all arrested protesters across the country, justice for all deceased victims of police brutality and appropriate compensation paid to all the affected families.
