The hastag #endsarz had been trending for weeks, more, so it has trended for years but nothing permanent has been done about the brutality of the special anti robbery squad (SARS). After blasting President Buhari on Twitter, Wizkid also addressed the governor of Lagos.
Wizkid blasted Muhammadu Buhari and told Nigeria’s president to face his country as he joined his voice in the #EndSARS campaign that has dominated Nigerian social media. He went straight for Buhari on Twitter after the president’s account tweeted a goodwill message to President of the United States of America Donald Trump and his wife who have tested positive for coronavirus.
“Donald Trump is not your business! “Old man! Police/Sarz still killing Nigerian youth on a daily! Do something! Nothing concern u for America! Face your country!!”. The Afrobeats star didn’t end there. He went on to address Governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and reminded him of his promise to always look out for young people.
“Mr Governor! I met with you December 2019! You expressed how proud you are of the entertainment industry and all we do. Pls do something let’s be proud of you too abeg ! #Endsars!!”.Wizkid’s comments arrive following reports of men of SARS illegally kidnapping young people and extorting huge sums of money from them.
The renewed call came on Saturday, October 3, 2020 following unconfirmed resorts that men of SARS shot a boy in Ughelli town of Delta State and made away with his SUV. We hope and pray the Nigerian authorities does something about this.
