Femi Kuti, Davido, Olamide, Other Celebrities Call For End To SARS

Following the recent activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), some Nigerian celebrities have taken to their social media pages to call for its end.

AllNews reports that this is not the first time the celebrities will call for end to SARS, over killings and abuse of human rights. 

Among them is legendary afro beats star, Femi Kuti who slammed the government for saving their families lives, but putting citizens' lives at risk.

His tweet read: “How many more innocent people must SARS/the police kill before urgent steps are taken to completely overhaul and reform the entire police force?

"Obviously, government and their families are safe, and that is why they are nonchalant and indifferent.”

Joining in the call for end to SARS are Yemi Alade, Olamide, Falz, Davido, Wizkid, Tony Umez, Fireboy, Small Doctor, among others who lamented over the squad's brutality.

Alade wrote “EndSars brutality.

Also on his Twitter page, Umez wrote “The gruesome harassment of the men called SARS has to end #EndSarsNow #EndSARS

Fireboy wrote “This country, can’t believe we’re back to this again. The Nigerian Police needs a complete reform, and the SARS program should be scrapped. Innocent Nigerian lives lost every day, it makes no sense.

“The silence of the government on this issue tells us all we need to know. It’s a sad reality. We’re alone."

On his part, Small Doctor wrote “This is getting worse every day, promising lives of youths been cut short. Why should we be living in fear? Why should we be scared to move freely?

“Why must our peers return home and the first question we ask is 'POLICE DEY ROAD?' YOU SEE POLICE”? WHY ?#EndSARS."

Meanwhile, the minister of youth and sports development, Sunday Dare, in a statement issued by John Joshua-Akanji, his special assistant, said the ministry "is worried about the menace, increasing harassments and attacks by SARS, especially targeted at youths and other innocent members of the public, and brought it to the attention of the relevant security agencies in Abuja.”
