Temi is not the only Nigerian celebrity who will be leading the protest tomorrow in London. Singer Wizkid who is also in London will be out tomorrow. BBNaija star, Mike Edwards will also be out for the protest tomorrow.
Since this week, Nigerian youths, celebrities and activists have taken to the streets across cities in Nigeria to demand the scrapping of the dreaded Special Anti-Robbery Squad Unit of the Nigerian police force.
The controversial police unit have come under attack for turning into a tool for extortion, harassment, maiming and extra-judicial killing of young Nigerians.
Although, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Adamu on Sunday banned the unit and other tactical units from stop-and-search, and President Buhari also begged for patience for the unit to be reformed, Nigerians are not buying their words because similar comments have been made 4 times in the past 4 years.
So, Nigerians are demanding outright scrapping of the unit. See some of the orders issued before now and the highlighted year they were issued.
