Police brutality is a recurring decimal in Nigeria. This angered the youths and led to spontaneous protest under the hash tag ‘#EndSARS’ which means End Special Anti Robbery Squad. The tradition of not doing the right thing or not taking prompt action by government on pressing issues affecting the citizenry is a clear act of weakness and
insult to the collective intelligence of the people. Protest should not be the only
language that the government understands.
This paper captured conceptual
clarifications such as #EndSARS, spontaneous protest and revolution. The paper also looked into government approach/actions, Black Tuesday, reactions of some foreigners
and celebrities, social media influence, inspiration from Black Lives Matter Movement in the United States of America. The paper also highlighted sustaining factors of the protest (COVID-19 pandemic lock down, ASUU strike, frustration as a result of bad
governance, lack of trust) the paper further looked into impending revolution, gains of the protest, aftermath of the #EndSARS protest hijacked by hoodlums leading to loss of
lives and property, looting of warehouses of both government and private individuals.
Recommendations were given at the end of the paper before conclusion.
