For months now, thousands of Nigerians have been calling on the government to scrap the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS).
SARS have been linked to series of criminal acts which is opposite the reason why they were employed.
These protests, however, have gone beyond a national protest as many international celebrities have joined the protest.
Most of them took to their Twitter pages to show off their support for the protesters.

After doing a little research I would like to speak out against what’s going on in Nigeria right now. Their pleas to #EndSarsNow IS VERY REAL. I have so much love for my Nigerian fans and it’s so hurtful to hear whats happening.
