The campaign against the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) has continued to garner momentum across the country.
This is despite an announcement by Mohammed Adamu, inspector-general of police (IGP), that the unit had been disbanded.
Protesters are now seeking compensation for the families of people killed by SARS and general police reforms including a pay raise for policemen
Dorsey joins the list of international figures that have expressed solidarity for the campaign against police brutality in the country.
TheCable Lifestyle had earlier reported how Cardi B, another US rapper, asked for a summary of what was going on in Nigeria while showing concern.
Big Sean, Trey Songz, US singers, had also earlier joined the protest, condemning police brutality in Nigeria, while urging relevant authorities to address the situation.
“After doing a little research I would like to speak out against what’s going on in Nigeria right now. Their pleas to #EndSarsNow is very real. I have so much love for my Nigerian fans and it’s so hurtful to hear what’s happening,” Songz had said.
“Police brutality here in America often is an abuse of power, driven by race. To be brutalised, extorted and murdered by your own people is unimaginable. Prayers up and I’m researching ways I can help. #EndSARS”
