In the wake of outcries by Nigerians over the activities of the Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), the speaker of the Lagos house of assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, on Friday morning called for an urgent meeting of the parliament.

AllNews reports that top personalities and other citizens in the country have over time called for an end to the anti-robbery squad, as a result of the incessant killing of youths.

Over the weekend, celebrities, in a renewed online protest, took to their social media pages to call for an end to the squad with several hashtags such as #EndSars, #EndSarspermanentlyNow, etc.

The protest began after a video where SARS operatives allegedly gunned down a man in Delta State.

On Thursday, celebrities like Tiwa Savage, Mr. Macaroni, Falz, Runtown, Runtown, Rude Boy, Jaywon, BBNaija's Tacha, and Prince, among others partook in a protest in Lagos.

Mr. Macaroni led an overnight protest which saw the protesters at the premises of the state house of assembly, requesting to meet the Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

AllNews gathered that members of the parliament pleaded with the protesters to go and return in the morning

“If we say we want to see the one that we elected into office, it is not too much,” Mr. Macaroni said.

Obasa, however, arrived at the scene of protest to address the protesters, assuring that amendments will be made.

On its social media page, the assembly announced that “After addressing the #EndSARS protesters led by @mrmacaronii at the early hours of today, Mr.Speaker @mudashiru_obasa has called for an emergency sitting later today to deliberate on way forward as it concerns SARS in Lagos State.”

Meanwhile, Mr Macaroni tweeted “We are still here!!! Starting again this morning 9:00 am!!! We are right in front of the Lagos house!!! Join us and let us save whatever is left of our future!!! It’s not easy but let’s give it a try!! We the Youths must rise!!! #ALutaContinua #EndSARSProtest,” he wrote.
