Global Protests

Nigerians across the globe have taken to the streets and online since last week to protest against police brutality, killings, extortion and harassment by the rogue police force.

Nigerian football stars like Asisat Oshoala, Ahmed Musa, Wilfred Ndidi, Alex Iwobi, Leon Balogun and Simon Moses were quick to identify with the protests.

Other international football stars like Marcus Rashford and Mesut Ozil have also expressed their solidarity.

American rapper and US presidential candidate, Kanye West, and other international figures have also joined the protests.

There have been protests in Lagos, Abuja, Abeokuta, Anambra, Abia, Ibadan, Kwara, Ebonyi, Enugu, Port Harcourt, Ibadan, and other states across Nigeria.

Despite the disbandment of SARS on Sunday and the announcement of the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) as its replacement, the protests have continued.
