Some Nigerian celebrities have called on the government to end police brutality as more evidence of illegal activities by Special Anti Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) emerged over the weekend.
The online protest was triggered by a post from a Twitter user who said he recorded SARS officials shooting a young boy to death and drove away with the deceased Lexus jeep in front of Wetland hotels at Ughelli, Delta state.
The unit has also been accused of several human rights violations especially of young Nigerians who are seen carrying laptops.
Nigerians have taken to Twitter to air their grievances and trend the #EndSARS campaign, celebrities such as WizKid, Davido, Reno Omokiri, Don Jazzy, Mercy Eke and others have said the government needs to do more in protecting the people.
Wizkid, in a series of tweets, called on Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari to focus on issues affecting the country and youths instead of matters in America.
Runtown, Naira Marley and a host of other Nigerians also plan to commence a physical protest by Thursday.
