The power of Nigerian celebs cannot be overemphasised when it comes lending their voices to an injustice.

A number of celebs have been very vocal about the ills perpetrated by Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) officials following several reports of their brutality. However, popular singer, Burna Boy, seems to have a different opinion.

The singer took to his Instagram page to explain that until Nigerians are actually ready to fight SARS officers then the peaceful protest and End SARS hashtags on social media are pointless.

He also added that nobody should include him in any End SARS hashtags because it is a waste of everybody’s time.
