Nigerian celebrities are trooping in on Twitter to lend their voices to the #EndSARS campaign.
They joined thousands of Nigerians online who are calling for the abolition of the police unit called SARS.
The unit has been accused of several human rights violations especially of young Nigerians who are seen carrying laptop computers.
The latest social media trend is as a result of a video that surfaced online on Saturday showing an innocent Nigerian shot dead by a police officer in Delta State.
See tweets below from Donjazzy, Olamide, Falz, Teni, FireBoy, Tacha, Mercy Eke, Erica, Skales, Paul Okoye (Psquare), Uche Jombo, Toke makinwa, Tiwa Savage, Daddy Freeze and more celebrities speaking out….

I’m a father more than an entertainer, so I feel the anger of parents and youths calling on the Govt and @PoliceNG to #EndSarsNow Those who are meant to protect us shouldn’t put our lives and property at risk. @MBuhari @NGRSenate @femigbaja do something now!

We are tired of “one day it go better”, we are tired of all your promises for a better Nigeria, our tired is tired. You can’t keep quiet while our young ones suffer in the hands of those who are meant to protect them, @mbuhari @jidesanwoolu #EndSarsBrutality #EndSars

I can drive a flashy car, wear funky clothes and any hairstyle I want!
It’s my right and it’s 💯 legal.
Harassment on the other hand is NOT legal, neither are police brutality and extortion.

this country, mehn. 💔 can’t believe we’re back to this again. the Nigerian Police needs a complete reform, and the SARS program should be scrapped. innocent Nigerian lives lost everyday, it makes no sense.

How many young Nigerians will have to be robbed/ kidnapped/killed by SARS before our Government takes it seriously? The “Special Anti-Robbery Squad” is doing the robbing?! Such a disgrace. What will it take for our “leaders” to do something about it? #EndSARS #EndSarsNow

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.

Makes me sick to my stomach that till now, we are still waiting for a single word from our so called “president” on this SARS menace.

You’re not catching armed robbers, you’re killing bullying and stealing from innocent young people. SARS IS THE REAL ARMED ROBBER!!

Nigerian youths are the most hardworking, creative and peace loving people I know but our government should not take it for granted. #ENDSars

#EndSARS Don’t reform or rebrand or repackage! We are tired

We need to be protected by the police and sars but instead we live in fear of brutality and murder! #EndSARSBrutality
