The protests started on Tuesday after the police authorities said SARS will not be disbanded despite being notorious for rights violations and arbitrary arrests.

Following a call by Twitter user @fkabudu, Nigerians within five hours raised a total of N788,000 to buy food, first aid kits, nose masks and other items for protesters in Lagos.
