Popular Nigerian songwriter  and singer Burna Boy, has  joined the EndSARS protest which lasted for four days all over Nigeria

People  has been showing their displeasure   on social media   inviting the government to put an end to the injustice allegely perpetrated by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigerian Police Force by dissolving the SARS unit.

Burna boy joined  the protest on Twitter,  said “I have taken the past week to gather my thoughts. I usually respond to these matters with my emotions and frustrations. This time I have chosen to ignore the attempts; well-meaning or derogatory to draw me out. This is not and should not be about me. It is about a fundamental problem that affects us all Nigerians, as Africans, and as human being

“The state of our country, Nigeria, is tricky; it has been from before I was born. My greatest concern in all of this is that SARS will end now as it allegedly has several times in the past (I recall giving calls to end SARS during my USA tour in April 2019  and morph into a different entity down the line with a different form or a different name. In my opinion, abolishing the unit is a definite first step but we cannot afford to stop there.”

He also added, “I have created a sub-fund under my charity- The Reach called (@ProjectProtectng) to help protesters that are wrongfully harmed/arrested by SARS during and after these protests. This is a fund for the people by the people.”
