Nigerians didn’t welcome the secret prosecution of the SARS operatives, demanding that the police make public the personnels by parading them just like the do with other criminals.
Nigerian singer, Simisola aka Simi voicing her stand against the killing and secret prosecution wrote on her social media handle.
“Why internal? Why not make public scapegoats out of them so the others learn accountability. If they don’t value our lives because they should, let them value it for fear of the consequences.
She pointed to the President of Nigeria to takes disciplinary steps to ensure justice is served.
“An innocent person dying because of the recklessness of an organization that only exists cos of lack of value. They do Not care. At all! I’m actually fed up. I’m tired. @MBuhari pls let someone pay for this. Pls. They can’t keep doing this to YOUR people and getting away with it.”
