Some #EndSARS protesters have begun to shower accolades on Patricia Amadin, a divisional police officer (DPO) of Anthony police station in Lagos state, for her “encouragement and support” during the campaign.

 

This is coming hours after a man, believed to be a mobile police officer, joined the #EndSARS protest in Lagos while venting his anger at the police unit.

 

Recall that Mohammed Adamu, inspector-general of police (IGP), announced the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) on Sunday after the nationwide outrage.

 

But shortly after the Adamu’s pronouncement, photos and video clips of the police officer calmly addressing  #EndSARS protesters in the commercial city started to gain momentum.

 

In one of the short videos, Amadin could be heard telling the protesters that she would “escort” them alongside her team as they continued their peaceful agitation for an end to police brutality.

 

In another footage, she could be seen assuring the #EndSARS protesters that her team would not impinge on their freedom of expression as enshrined in the constitution.

 

Several Nigerians have since taken to the micro-blogging platform to hail the police officer’s “heroics” while others also recounted their previous encounters with her.

 

 

“Hello Twitter family ! Please let’s give this woman 1k Rt she is the DPO of Anthony police station, she is truly a mother . She gave the protesters morale and security at today’s protest #EndSARS #Nigeria #EndPoliceBrutality,” a Twitter user wrote.

 

One of the users, who lauded the police officer, recounted how she came to his rescue when her colleagues arrested him for moving around with a power bike after the state government had banned movement of motorcycles.

 

“During the bike ban, trigger happy policemen held me at Maryland and insisted that the ban covers power bikes. She was the one that let me go. beautiful soul, we gisted for a bit. She’s doing her second masters as we speak, Better woman!!!!,” the user wrote.

  

Below are what Nigerians had to say about her:

  1. There is always a good one in the midst of bads, and bads in the midst of good. The idea is where you have almost all good and very very very few bads. This is because by the laws of life, there will always be an outcast
