Lady Zamar has joined the many voices that have called for the end of police brutality in Nigeria. A special police force known as Sars has allegedly been oppressing the people of Nigeria. The calls to end the violence have been echoed by celebrities and activists across the world.
Taking to Twitter, Lady Zamar expressed her outrage at the atrocities which are allegedly taking place in the neighbouring country.
"It’s disconcerting what’s happening in Nigeria. For freedom to be real, all must be free, to live and breathe without the threat of violence and brutality from those sworn in to protect them in their societies; never abusing that trust."
Social media users weighed in on her comments. Twitter user Ndabezi33230134 said:
"Until the people unite as one Africa will never be free."
"Heee bathong. When are you going to speak about issues affecting South Africans. Naija is too far away hlem."
"#EndSARS #EndSWAT #YouthDemocraticParty #NigerianReformedPolice... fellow Nigerian youths, no backing down!!!"
Pearl Thusi also lent her voice to the cause recently. Briefly.co.za learned that Pearl Thusi has expressed her support towards the call by Nigerians to end police brutality in their country.
The hashtag #EndSars has been trending on social media as Nigerians alleged that the special police force has been abusing their power. Mzansi media personality, Pearl Thusi, has shown her support to the cause by taking to Instagram to add her voice.
The gorgeous actress posted an image depicting 3 raised fists along with the caption:
"The movement continues... from the USA, South Africa, Nigeria and all around the world...Let’s lend each other support and fight this oppression together!#endSARS #ENDSARSNOW #endsarsbrutality #ISTANDWITHTHENIGERIANPEOPLE #IAMANAFRICAN"
Pearl limited the comments to her post as she often receives backlash from South Africans for supporting Nigeria more than her own country, according to some.
Briefly.co.za had previously reported that Pearl Thusi has been receiving constant shade ever since she stood up for foreign nationals living in Mzansi. The foreign nationals' topic is a touchy one in Mzansi that holds a lot of hate, hurt and inequality.
