Nigerians React To Reports That FG Might Shut Down The Internet To Stop #EndSARS Protest

Reactions have trailed reports that the Nigerian government is planning to shut down the internet, following unending protests calling for the ban of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

There are speculations that the federal government may shut all protesters up by shutting down the internet since alternative moves to divide the protesters have failed.

Active protesters on and off social media have also reported that unknown numbers have been calling and threatening them to back off from the protests. Even a Feminist Coalition, a pro-#EndSARS women group, said its bank account has been deactivated. 

Following the reports to shut down the internet, Nigerians have vowed to unleash hell on the streets if the government carries out such action. 

Some others who call themselves online protesters, have also promised to take their protests offline if the internet is shut down. Others provided solutions to remain online, if the need arises.

See reactions; 

“If the Internet gets shut down in this age, banks, organisations & agencies that need internet also shut down. Whenever it comes back up, protests resume. If they block social media access, we'll use VPN. And soon we'll be visiting their earnings. No sleep for the wicked.” – @OluwaMac
“If the Nigeria govt decides to shutdown the internet instead of listening to the cry of the masses then I think they should also consider to shutdown the entire country let's just live like that. We have been suffering for so long and this has to stop.” – @KaraBeete
