The country has been raging since the dreaded anti-robbery squad, SARS, recently killed over three persons and also launched series of assaults on Nigerian youths.
The #EndSARS hashtag is back and this time Nigerians are not taking ‘NO’ for an answer.
Nigerian musicians have also lent their voices to ensure that the government takes decisive action against recalcitrant officers.
In a series of tweets, YBNL boss Olamide, wondered why the government had remained silent on the matter after
seeing the trending issues.
Falz also said it was time for SARS to leave the roads as they have continually harmed the citizens.
Runtown on the other hand, has called for a protest. He will be leading a protest on Thursday, 8th October. The peaceful protest will hold 10am at Lekki Phase 1, Toll Gate.

Police brutality is sky rocketing by the day And the nigeria gov. Is not deaf nor blind, they see all the trends and tag along with whichever one they like. You don't have to like this one to do right thing. The hashtags are becoming tiring. The people are sick of it.— Olamidé (@Olamide) October 4, 2020
The greatest patriotism is to tell your country when it is behaving dishonorably, foolishly, viciously.— Olamidé (@Olamide) October 4, 2020
This is not the time to point fingers, who the fuck is protesting and who is not. It's time to collectively stop fighting each other and demand good governance. Nobody deserve to killed for nothing by the people that's meant to protect them. The Gov. Should lead by example.— Olamidé (@Olamide) October 4, 2020
Don't ignore the people when they need you and come back later talking about the people are the problem of nigeria.— Olamidé (@Olamide) October 4, 2020
