Super Eagles players Leon Balogun, Shehu Abdulahi, and John Ogu have joined the protest against extortion and brutality by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
Hundreds of youths across the country have taken to streets in a solidarity protest to call for the scrapping of FSARS.
Balogun tweeted, “The reasons for the #EndSARSProtests have just come to my attention via very disturbing images and tweets. It is never good when those charged with protecting the citizens are now terrorising, extorting, or even killing the same citizens. I support #EndSarsProtests #EndSars.”
Ogu, who has been without a club since the COVID-19 pandemic, also wrote, “I pray our first checkpoint will never be our last bus-stop. Enough is enough.”
“The voice of the people must be heard, @NigeriaGov must #EndSARS and protect the lives of our Youth from #PoliceBrutality. My brother @BashirAhmaad, kindly pass our message to the President @MBuhari,” Abdulahi added.
