A tribute video from one of the protesters on twitter, for the SARS victim watch below:
My brother was a barber He was arrested because sars said armed robbers cut their hair in his shop so he’s definitely part of them, It’s been more than 10 years We can’t find him. We didn’t get his corpse. We all act like he never existed.
Apparently, 10 people have been murdered since young Nigerians protesting police brutality and demanding widespread police reforms began taking to the streets of cities across Nigeria. hotsteppers.com.ng.
My mum cried, cursed them, I was arrested for no just cause. Tortured, they blocked one of the veins passing blood to my palm, they said I was an armed robber. I can never forget the day… We parted with 50k to get me released… #ENDSARS
To shoot someone in the street because they’re not afraid of you or because they have dreadlocks or because they dress nice – you’re so empty that you would take another human being’s life to feel like you’re something. Karma will find all you wicked, heartless people #EndSARS
Seeing videos of women crying talking about children they’ve lost to the police and I’m crying. Being a new mom brings it so close to home. What has to happen to you to make u have such little value for another person’s life? Even if u’re mad, how can u be that mad? #EndSARS
