Currently in Nigeria, there’s a huge outrage by the young people who have been killed illegally, unlawfully and extrajudicially by a rogue unit in the Nigerian Police Force called SARS.
SARS stands for Special Anti Robbery Squad. But they never attend to robbery or violent crimes. Instead they attack innocent young people especially young men- they harass, torture, detain and kill, even burying them in shallow graves.
Politicians, government leaders and the police heads in Nigeria keep quiet because they use this rogue unit to intimidate and harass young people. Some police leaders even use them to extort money.

As a nigerian citizen, all I’m asking is for the UK and USA to ban all our government leaders and Nigerian police hierarchy UNTIL and UNLESS they listen to the people and scrap this notorious assassin unit in the nigerian police force.
Dear UK, Canada and USA; please issue a visa ban on all our leaders and help save our lives. That’s the only time they will act on this issue and take it seriously. Thank you.
