The call for justice against Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) by the youth in Nigeria is gradually getting out of hand. Demands by protestors are not being met and killings on the streets are increasing every day.
Nigerian youth wants government to end it but they don’t seem satisfied with the dissolution of SARS. This has led many celebrities in and outside Nigeria to join the protest either physically on the streets or through their social media handles. Today following disturbing reports, videos from social media, multiple award winning Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie has said a prayer for Nigeria and encouraging Nigerian youth who are still standing in the fight for justice.
His tweet reads: “It is really crazy what’s still going on out there in Nigeria Flag of Nigeria … RIP to Lives lost and strength to those still fighting for justice… God be with you #EndSARS”.The protesters are demanding a holistic approach to the reformation of the entire police force.
According to the protestors, they are aggravated over claims of kidnapping, harassment, and extortion by the controversial police unit that has been rocking several cities across the country in the past weeks.
Meanwhile, these protests have culminated into bloody clashes between protesters and the police, leading to deaths and injuries on both sides.
