The Nigerian Police Force Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit (PCRRU) head Yomi Shogunle shared a post on TwitterNG detailing ways through which complaints can be made about the SARS unit.
There are phone numbers to be reached through phone calls, through SMS and WhatsApp, a BBM Pin, and social media pages on Twitter and Facebook.

How though do you lodge a complaint about people who are impossible to identify? People who dress in mufti and have no name tags, whose cars have no plate numbers.
Nigerians are now sharing a link to a petition written to the legislative arm of government asking to have SARS scrapped and the police reformed.
Calling for 2000 signatures, 1639 people have so far signed the petition.
It’d be interesting to see what will eventually happen – if this issue, like many others, will be swept under the rug, or if actions will be taken to protect the masses from the people who have been charged to protect them.
