    Stop killing us. That’s the demand made by thousands of Nigerians protesting against police brutality. The notorious Special Anti-Robbery Squad, or SARS, that’s accused of abuses, has been disbanded. And President Muhammadu Buhari is promising extensive police reform. But protesters say previous efforts to overhaul the police forces weren’t fulfiled. And they’ll keep up pressure on Buhari to take more action.
