Techies in Nigeria Are Not Safe Again In The Hands of the Government

Hello everyone!

I am typing this in tears 😭😭😭

This is just to inform you that Nigerians are not safe again in the hands of our so-called government.

There is a special unit of the Nigerian Police Force called SARS that is supposed to be handling robbery cases but in recent years, the operating officers switched from protecting lives of the citizen to destroying their lives.

It all started as a cybercrime movement but they started attacking techies after sometime and now it is everyone!

Now the protest for the government to disband this unit has been on for a while now, the government disbanded them and after like 3 days came with another unit which is basically the same thing but with different name: SWAT.

The protest continued but today became our worst nightmare as the government hired thugs, sent out the army to start killing it own people!

Warning: there are graphic images of real-life brutal violence in the following link: https://endsars.com/videos

PLEASE HELP US!

😭😭😭😭😭
