Weighing in on the ongoing protest against police brutality in Nigeria, US rapper Kanye West has asked the Federal Government to heed the protestations of the people.

Kanye West made this appeal via Twitter on Tuesday, saying that he was in support of the protest by Nigerians.

He said, “I stand with my Nigerian brothers and sisters to end police brutality, the government must answer to the peoples’ cries #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeria.”

Despite the announcement by the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, of the dissolution of the Special Anti-RObbery Squad (SARS), Nigerians continue to protest, demanding that the government fully executes the declaration of the ban.

Roads and highways across cities were blocked by protesters who believe that the government had not done enough in curbing the violence meted on Nigerians by the rogue police unit.

President Muhammadu Buhari, in an address, said that the “disbanding of SARS is only the first step in our commitment to extensive police reforms”.

Adding that “The purpose of law enforcement and the purpose of policing is for the safety of lives and livelihood of Nigerians.”

The words of the president did nothing to assuage the grievances of Nigerians, as they say that the government was only paying lip service to the disbandment, seeing as the order had been carried out years prior to no definite end to the menace.
