Nigerian entertainers, Folarin “Falz” Falana and Douglas “Runtown” Agu led a protest to call for the scrapping of the Nigerian Police’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Lagos on Thursday.

The protest that started from Lekki in Lagos had protesters bearing placards with inscriptions like “Enough is Enough”, “Protect us and not Kill us”, “We are all victims”, etc.

Falz, an actor, singer, and son of Nigerian lawyer and activist, Femi Falana, took to his twitter page to announce the beginning of the peaceful protest on Thursday morning.

He said, “No backing down. We move. The police are already there, waiting for us but we are not here to cause trouble. It is a peaceful protest. Coming through.”
