The government of the United Kingdom has reacted to the #EndSars protests currently rocking different cities across Nigeria.

The #Endsars protesters across various cities in the country are demanding among other things, an end to the indiscriminate acts of police brutalities and particularly the total disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a controversial unit of the police force.

The protests which have been holding across some states including Lagos, Kwara, and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja is to call government attention to the high-handed activities of the SARS officers.

They want the government to scrap SARS, investigate and prosecute erring officers, and compensate victims of SARS abuse.

The protests, which are yet to stop have now attracted the attention of the government of the United Kingdom as the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing on Friday evening via a statement on her Twitter page, said the protests represent the desire of the people of Nigeria for police reform.

She urged the government to look into the demands of the people.
