Some celebrities, on Thursday, has protested the incessant killings and brutality of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS. Rather than sit in the comfort of their homes and merely take to social media to condemn these killings, they took it a step further. They brought the social media outcry down to the streets of Lagos rather than being mere ‘keypad warriors’. They showed that talk is indeed cheap, and actions, in some cases, speak louder than words. These celebs used their huge social media following to lend their voices to the #EndSARS movement. The stars walked their talks, practiced what they preach. T
Here are some of the celebrities that sacrificed that their time to reject the SARS reform and clamor for total scrapping.
