Tacha Akide, an ex-housemate of the BBNaija reality show, has asked Nigerian youths to continue to protest and not lose focus in the #EndSARS campaign.

The ex-BBN housemate, in a video shared on Twitter, said youths should stop fighting each other and focus on the protest in order to achieve its goal,

She added that if the protesters do not stay united, the government will not take them seriously and the protest would have been in vain.

“Guys, we are losing focus. All eyes are on us, everybody is watching us and this is not the time to lose focus,” she said.

“There are people in different locations out there to protest and we are here dragging ourselves.

“I understand that the government cannot dialogue with everybody but if they can they should.

“It is not time for us to be fighting. You think Jimoh Isiaq where he is, will be smiling at us or you think all the lives we lost will be smiling at us.

“If we continue like this, by weekend this whole thing will die off, so let’s not forget why we started this movement”.

 

TheCable had earlier reported that she cancelled a protest she was to lead against police brutality in Port Harcourt, Rivers state after the state governor prohibited campaigns against SARS.

Adamu Mohammed, the inspector-general of police, had previously announced the disbandment of SARS as the protest started to gain the attention of the international community and rights activists.

The movement had shifted focus from SARS to the much broader fight against police brutality in the country.
