Music producer Don Jazzy and movie actress Toyin Abraham on Saturday joined other Nigerian to protest over the brutality and killing by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
This comes after several protests by Nigerian, decrying the constant harassment from SARS operatives and lamentations at the rate at which young creatives are being battered and killed by police officers.
Listening to the cry of the youths, President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday asked the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu to address the concerns of Nigerians.
The President said that he had directed the IGP to firmly address the concerns of Nigerians regarding these excessive killings and ensure erring personnel is brought to justice.
President Buhari also called for peace as Nigerians freely make their intentions known.
“I appeal for patience and calm, even as Nigerians freely exercise their right to peacefully make their views known”.
The activities of the police unit have come under scrutiny and several members of the squad have been found guilty of using their position of authority to trample on the rights of citizens, especially the youths.
