Olamide, Simi, Vector & Others Join The #EndSARS Twitter Trend (See Tweets)





Nigerians have found a common course in voicing out against the societal threats and danger posed by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). The topic is currently trending on social media under the hashtag #EndSARS and the general consensus seems to be that the group causes more harm than good to Nigerians, especially the youths. This has caused people to call for the group to be scrapped.

Former Vice -president of the nation, Atiku Abubakar has aired his opinion on the matter and several music stars are coming out to do the same. The likes of Olamide, Vector, Simi, TJan, Baseone, Orezi and co. have lent their voices to the course for the establishment of the supposed anti-robbery group called SARS.

#EndSarsBrutality plenty suffer man de face. Guide and protect the people not make life miserable for them due to the pressure that comes with your work or what you going through at home. A man with gun should be mentally balance and well oriented

People are not supposed to be afraid of the people that are supposed to be looking after us. A couple weeks ago, at almost midnight, my friends and I had a gun pointed at us for laughing. For laughing. #EndSARS#ActuallyTakeGunsAwayFromTriggerHappyPeopleWhoHideBehindTheUniform!

Their boss had to talk him down! Pointing a gun at 3 ladies because of your insecurities is incredibly frightening! Policemen need to be mentally evaluated and checked before being handed guns. And they need to be accountable!! Otherwise, they can get away with anything. #EndSARS
