In response to the campaign by Nigerian netizens to #EndSARS, the Police have launched a counter hashtag calling on the public to #SupportSARS.
The hashtag was launched on Friday with the police official twitter handle reeling out reasons why the squad, which has been blamed for many atrocities should not be scrapped as demanded by Nigerians online.

This government said nothing about the SARS issue or acknowledge any issues about their brutality but when we decide to do an #EndSARS rally, they in turn decide to run a #supportSARS rally and pay media houses to get involved.
What a shame. That’s the Nigeria we’re in. Wow

Nigerian Youths are the most confused set of human being in the whole world.
One volunteered, one paid
