Kanye West, Kirk Franklin solidarize with Nigerians over police brutality protest

Some global celebrities have joined in protesting police brutality in Nigeria.

US rapper, Kanye West, and US gospel singer, Kirk Franklin, are among a host of celebrities who have taken to social media to condemn gruesome police excesses.

Enraged Nigerians, since last Friday, have been protesting both online and offline against brutality by the Special anti-robbery squad of the Nigeria Police Service (SARS).

The core of the protests has been a call for President Muhammadu Buhari to scrap SARS, as it is largely known for blatant extortion.

Thousands of Nigerians including celebrities have taken to the streets to protest the killings of innocent people and against the assaults.

To show solidarity some global and Ghanaian celebrities have taken to their social media pages to condemn the police brutalities.

“Privilege will have you believing that what’s happening in Nigeria cannot happen in Ghana. Listen, Nigerians didn’t just wake up one day and decide to protest; this has been building up for many years. And it’s not just about SARS either, people are just tired” Lydia Forson wrote.

“Police brutality here in America often is an abuse of power-driven by race. To be brutalized, extorted, and murdered by your own people is unimaginable. Prayers up and I’m researching ways I can help. #EndSARS,” Trey Songz tweeted Saturday.

Similarly, American gospel singer Kirk Franklin, using the photo of one of the Nigerian protesters, issued a message of support on Instagram: “For over 20 years, Nigeria stood with me, now I stand with you. #endsarsnow.”
