“#WizKid, Davido, Burna Boy, More Support Nigerian Anti-Police Brutality Protests”
Over the weekend, Nigerian singer Burna Boy released a statement outlining his response. “In my opinion, abolishing [SARS] is a definite first step but we cannot afford to stop there,” he wrote. He went on to share his support for protesters and announced a charity to help those who were harmed or arrested during the demonstrations. Additionally, he announced an initiative to help spread information and create “broader platforms to amplify the creative and tech community.” Below, find an image of one of his #EndSARS billboards.
SARS was formed in 1992 as an effort to tackle crime in Nigeria. In a June report, Amnesty International documented at least 82 alleged cases of “torture, ill treatment, and extra-judicial execution” by SARS from January 2017 through May 2020.
