Disability Rights Advocacy Center (DRAC) has joined the growing list of #EndSARS protesters in Abuja and some states in Nigeria to press for the vox pop demand for #PoliceReform and #GoodGovernance in Nigeria.
The group stormed the streets of Abuja to join the peaceful protests and distribute food packs and water to the #EndSARS protesters during the exercise.
The executive director, Dr. Irene Ojiugo Patrick-Ogbogu, in a statement shared on social media asserted that she has had her own share of harrowing experiences and run-ins with the now scrapped Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), as did some of her staff.
She also expressed pleasure at the immense sacrifices the young people are making to take back our country.
“Glad that our voices were heard and we will be counted among those who walked the streets and demanded for CHANGE.”
“Of course my protest experience wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t sneak in a few words about Disability Rights!”
“Unfortunately old age and creaky bones meant I had to leave early but I definitely had a blast and see more protests in the future.” She concluded.
