Demonstrations against the SARS are taking place in the West African country and around the world, which has become notorious for its allegations of atrocities and extortion.

 

In a post on Instagram on Tuesday night, the 39-year-old star admitted that he was heartbroken to see the senseless barbarism taking place in Nigeria, insisting: "The stork must end."

 

"We are working in partnership with youth organizations to support protesters for change," the formation hitmaker continued. We are partnering with the Alliance to provide emergency health care, food and shelter. For our Nigerian sisters and brothers, we stand by you.

 

In recent weeks, protesters have taken to the streets daily in protest of police brutality in Lagos, with stars including John Boyega; Chance the Rapper, and Burna Boy supporting the opposition.

 

President Mohammad Buhari dissolved the unit on October 11, but protesters have called for more changes in the security forces as well as reforms in the way the country is’ run.

 

Following the protests, officials imposed a curfew outside the city of Lagos as anti-riot personnel struggled to contain violence in the region.
