Police Brutality: Burnaboy, other Nigerians in UK protest to Nigeria High Commission
Afrobeat singer Damini Ogulu (Burnaboy) and other Nigerians in the United Kingdom protest today again in front of Nigeria’s High Commission in London and the UK parliament following rising cases of killings of youths and peaceful protesters calling for an end to Police brutality in Nigeria.
Protests in Nigeria has taken a new turn since yesterday with scores of youths killed at Lekki Tollgate. The youth numbering at least ten were killed by some alleged military men at the tollgate where they are protesting against police brutality.
Nigerians in the UK are calling on the UK Parliament to prevail on President Muhammadu buhari to stop the security operatives from killing peaceful protesters.
Last night killing has brought about enrage youths attacking some public properties in Lagos and other parts of Nigeria.
Youths in Nigeria have been protesting now for close to two weeks particularly in the Southern part of Nigeria over police brutality. Last week, the Inspector General of Police disbanded the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS unit of the Nigerian Police.
Despite the IGP disbanding the rogue unit, the youths have refused to quit the streets insisting that they will continue to protest until they say changes in the society.
The protest in Nigeria has now gone global with international bodies intervening in the call from the youths and advising the government to yield to their demands.
