Kanye West, the music sensation, added his voice to End SARS Calls.
On Monday, via Twitter, Kanye announced his position.
The fashion magnate encouraged government officials to listen to the people.
“I stand with my Nigerian brothers and sisters to avoid police brutality, and the government must respond to the # EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeria screams of the people,” he tweeted.
Global sympathies were derived from the fight against the infamous Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
Organizations such as Black Lives Matter have demonstrated unity with Nigerians, as well as many foreign celebrities.
Police have announced that the unit has been disbanded, but demonstrators argue that their demands have not been met.
They want a thorough investigation and prosecution of all officers found culpable of murders and assaults.
Ongoing protests have left at least 6 people dead, scores wounded and some in critical condition.
