Meanwhile, Nigerian singer Ayodeji Balogun has been among celebrities in the country who have used their respective social media platforms to speak against police brutality in the country and the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
The singer who was at a protest which held in the United Kingdom on Sunday, October 11, dropped a word of advice for Nigerian youths on social media shortly after the end of the protest.
According to Wizkid, there is a need for youths in the country to show their real power during the next general elections in the country.
Meanwhile, two love birds who recently walked down the aisle joined the ongoing EndSARS campaign aimed at compelling the authorities to disband the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
Nigerians are tired of the illegal activities of the operatives of this police unit who are notorious for trampling on the rights of citizens.
Youths in the country and celebrities have been calling on the government to disband the unit but the latter is hellbent on reforming SARS instead of disbanding it.
