EndSARS: It’s my birthday but there’s nothing to celebrate – Ikechukwu
US-based Nigerian rapper, Ikechukwu was a year older yesterday but did not celebrate the milestone.
Taking to Instagram, he said he did not bother with any celebration as there was nothing to celebrate when police brutality continued in Nigeria.
Expressing support for Nigerian youths protesting across the nation, Ikechukwu said he was happy they have finally realised their importance to the nation.
It may be my birthday today but it really doesn’t feel like anything needs to be celebrated.
Men lost their lives yesterday.
Our cries continue to fall on deaf ears.
They keep thinking they can scam us with words.
Sars is not dissolved they have just reassigned the officers to other units and departments.
The only thing I am thankful now is the youth have woken up and realised this is their country.
Just because you are older doesn’t mean u can lead.
Since childhood they have been shouting leaders of tomorrow. Tomorrow has come.
Can we lead please. Ah#ENDSARS #SARSMUSTEND
We will celebrate next years bday.
This one get as e be
Hours after Ikechukwu’s message, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu announced the creation of Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) Team to replace the defunct SARS.
