The sudden move by Nigerian youths to fully participate in the country’s general elections is not unconnected to the 2020 EndSARS protest, which served as an eye-opener that young Nigerians can influence critical decisions in the country.



Naijacrawl recalls that youths across the country shut down economic and other activities in Nigeria in October, 2020, when they protested alleged extra-judicial killings by the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.

The social movement and mass protests against police brutality, which took-off in Edo State after an innocent citizen was allegedly gunned down by members of the SARS, escalated to other parts of the nation, halting social and economic activities.

Although several youths paid the supreme price when the protests were hijacked by alleged sponsored hoodlums, some of the core aims, which included a call for the disbandment of SARS, were achieved.
