Twitter has launched an emoji sign in support of anti-police protests in Nigeria.
The CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, posted the hashtag #EndSARS with a new logo he created this Friday morning
The emoji logo, which shows the hand of the Nigerian logo, has already started to gain acceptance and spread on other site and on social media.
This is the second week of protests against police brutality that started from Twitter and then spread to the streets of Nigeria’s major cities and beyond, including London and Berlin.
First the protesters demanded the abolition of the SARS force on charges of harassment and community violence and senseless killings.
But after President Muhammadu Buhari’s announcement on Sunday of the disbandment of SARS, protesters also demanded that the police force be reformed, and that compensation be paid to the families of those killed or abused and that police salaries be improved.
