Nigeria Music Legend Femi Kuti has joined other Nigerians in the ongoing protest calling for an end to police brutality by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
The protesters are calling for an end to SARS, reforms in the police, the release of some of the protesters who were arrested by the police during last week’s protests, prosecution of the officers that killed these victims, and compensation for the families of the deceased.
They are also calling for an end to police brutality, insisting that President Muhammadu Buhari should make the pronouncement disbanding SARS by way of an executive order.
Meanwhile, President Buhari has reacted to the outcry on the reform of the Nigeria Police Force NPF promising to extensively reform the Force.
Olufemi Anikulapo Kuti is the eldest son of Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti and a grandchild of a political campaigner, women’s rights activist and traditional aristocrat Funmilayo Ransome Kuti.
