#EndSARS: Marcus Rashford joins Nigeria protest against police brutality

There have been continuous demonstrations by youths in the West African country as they demand the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS)

Marcus Rashford has voiced his opinion in a supportive manner against police brutality in Nigeria.

SARS officers have been accused of harassing, robbing and killing youths over the last few years.

In February, a footballer named Tiamiyu Kazzeem was murdered in Ogun State.

β€œMy thoughts and prayers with all of those affected #EndSARS,” Rashford tweeted.

A number of other footballers have voiced their support for those in Nigeria.

After watching a video of how SARS operatives harass the youths on social media, Arsenal legend Ian Wright did not hesitate to lend his voice to the public outcry.

β€œ#EndSARS β€œEndSarsNow,” the 56-year-old tweeted with a Nigerian flag and a love emoji.

Ghana goalkeeper Fatau Duada, who won the Nigeria Professional Football League title in 2019, called for an end to the killings. He also described Nigeria as his second home.

Former United players Rio Ferdinand and Angel Gomes tweeted their support for the #EndSARS cause.
