Global Youth Network Nigeria supports the end to police brutality

 

GLOBAL YOUTH NETWORK NIGERIA IS SOLIDLY BEHIND NIGERIA YOUTH FOR CALLING FOR THE ENDING OF POLICE BRUTALITY

Nigerian and African youths are indeed fighting for their future.The current  protest  ongoing by young  Nigerians is calling for the end of a session of the unit of Nigerian police force called Federal Anti Robbery Squad (F-SARS). The unit which is known for harassment, extortion and killing of young Nigerian citizens as against their primary responsibility. The F-SARS officers are meant to curb armed robbery and kidnapping.

As a youth organization, Global Youth Network in Nigeria stands behind the Nigeria youth. Beyond the end of police brutality, there is more to be done by the youths to correct the ills in the country.

We believe the future of the youth is in their hands and we are asking  you to please lend your voice and support this PEACEFUL PROTEST across Nigeria and world-wide. Our people say: “Na who dey alive go enjoy life”.

The youths do not hate the police; they are also protesting to demand the government to increase the welfare of the police officers so they can live better lives and stop their acts of extortion and intimidation.

Please, always remember to stay peaceful and safe while you protest for a better Nigeria and Africa.
