Nigerian Gospel artists, as well as some ministers, have decided to take a stand against Police brutality and extortion by lending their voices to #ENDSARS.
The recent wave of the protests, which took place on and offline, has taken a different turn as this has gone beyond domestic shores, to involving diaasporeans and other members of the International Community.
These Nigerian gospel artists all shared the fact that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, of the Nigerian Police Force has begun to abuse its power thereby constituting a nuisance of itself.
Below are some social media posts by some Nigerian gospel artists on #ENDSARS:
The sun(over Nigeria) will rise when the sons(of Nigeria) arise. The professional misconduct and outright criminal behaviour of security operatives cannot be overlooked.

They have led by an example that many will follow, by showing that the Church does not sit on the fence when the system is faulty. It is our prayer that a change will come soon.-PROVERBS 29:2
