International Celebrities Speak Out Against Massacre of End SARS Protestors

Local and international celebrities across the world have spoken out against the wanton massacre and human rights violations perpetrated by the Nigerian government on the End SARS protestors.


The Nigerian security forces brazenly opened fire on unarmed peaceful protesters who were singing the national anthem at Lekki tollgate on Tuesday, after Nigeria entered its second week of nationwide protests against police brutality.

Nigerians have been protesting against the excesses and human rights abuses perpetrated by members of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) who are alleged to have shot and killed dozens of civilians.

This squad was one of the elite units of the Nigerian police force that has been condemned by human rights organizations for widespread abuses, including torture and killings.

Nigeria’s young people have led the protests saying that they bear the brunt of police brutality.

Unfortunately, the Nigerian government responded in a heavy-handed manner and deployed armed soldiers to shoot at the protestors who were defying the curfew, after allegedly throttling and in some cases shutting down the internet.

Award-winning South African musician AKA said:

“How can a government have no regard for the life of its citizens. How can people shoot to KILL their own countrymen and women? This is insane. We are living in an insane time in human history. #EndSARSSending LOVE & STRENGTH to NAIJA”
