Dancehall musician, Shatta Wale, has added his voice to the ongoing protest in Nigeria where some celebrities and citizens are demonstrating against the country’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
According to him, he has been following the brutalities happening in Nigeria, adding that it was about time that they attain the freedom and justice they want.
I have been following what’s happening to our people in Nigeria and as someone who believes in freedom and justice, the rise of the streets, I will like to say these things must stop. Police brutality anywhere is a threat to nation building #StopPoliceBrutality #EndSARS.
Protests have taken place in several Nigerian cities, with placard-carrying demonstrators marching through the streets and demanding that SARS, a police unit accused of extensive abuse and extortion, be abolished.
On Thursday, protesters in Lagos spent a night outside of a government building. The Lagos House of Assembly later on Friday passed a motion backing calls for SARS to be scrapped. The lawmakers also urged police to ensure the safety of protesters and not harrass them.
