Story By Akinola Emmanuel

The North London, Arsenal Midfielder, Mesut Ozil has also joined the long list of celebrities outside the shore of the nation to press home demand that Special Anti Robbery Squard ( SARS) should be scrapped.

Early this year, a Remo Stars defender Tiyamiyu Kazeem was shot dead by a SARS officer after an encounter in Ogun State, the South Western region of Nigeria. Other Nigerians who have lost their family members to the recurring extrajudicial killings of the controversial police unit have also raised their voices.

Some Nigerian celebrities have also shared their brutal experiences with the Anti-Robbery squad.

However, On Sunday, Ozil joined the list of great footballers who have asked the Nigerian government to endorse the demands of its youth.

“Horrible to hear what’s been going on in Nigeria. Let’s make this a trending topic everywhere #EndSARS – My thoughts go out to everyone who has been affected.#EndPoliceBrutality,” he wrote.
