It is currently 1am as I write this post with tears in my eyes. Yes , we are all living in fear in Nigeria right now. No one knows who is next or what might happen next. Each time, I want to give up—i remember Jimoh Isiaq and many others we don’t every know of that their lives have been cut short by police brutality. Nigeria needs your prayers and we need to win this fight!
The message still remains #EndSARS but are SARS our only problem in Nigeria when the government are even worse.
Protests have spread across Nigeria and a lot have taken to social media and the streets to fight against police brutality and the menace of SARS.
For my non-Nigerian subscribers, you may have been following international news for the past one week or you may have heard the phrase or have seen the hashtag #EndSARS or maybe you haven’t.
What is SARS?
The full meaning of SARS is ‘Special Anti-Robbery Squad.’ However, for a long time now this “squad” has gone outside of their stipulated functions and are now a nightmare in this country. They have been killing and harassing innocent young youths in the country under the guise of “they are criminals.”
How can you help?
A simple #EndSARS hashtag on any of your social media would go a long way—you can never underestimate the power of social media. You can also help by sign

I’m tired, we all are. I can’t count how many times I have cried this month. Seeing videos of how the police have responded using violence means to disperse a peaceful protest. Who does that?
All we ask is to not be shot, we are not even protesting for basic things— the government has refused to offer us. We are only fighting for our survival.
Whether you are out on the frontlines protesting, or tweeting, donating, mobilising support, signing petitions; I see you and I’m proud of you and i know we are winning this fight.
P.S : I am sending hugs, all of my love, prayers and best wishes as we keep pushing till our demands are met to #EndSARS and EndBadGovernmentInNigeria
P.P.S: Say a prayer of Nigeria.
P.P.P.S: Whatever you do, don’t be silent!
