As the #EndSARS protest spreads to more cities across Nigeria, a growing number of personalities are lending their voices to demand an end to police brutality in the country.
British-Nigerian actor, John Boyega, said nothing had changed since Nigeria’s police chief promised to reform SARS three years ago and called on all to give attention to the plight of Nigerians.
He said, “Three years ago, Nigeria’s police chief re-organised SARS after public condemnation about the violence that came with their operations. That change has done nothing for Nigerians and today many are still in danger. #EndSarsProtests
Prominent Britsh broadcaster, Piers Morgan, reacting to a video by Amnesty International portraying rights violations carried out by SARS, also called for an end to police brutality in the country.
