Many Nigerian entertainers have not hidden their rejection of the scrapped Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) on account of the excesses of its operatives. One who has added his voice in the #EndSARS cries, is singer, Kelvin Obumneke Nwobodo, a.k.a.Tipsy Kelvano.
Joining other Nigerians in condemning the unlawful operations of officers of the defunct SARS, Tipsy Kelvano on Saturday said the protest was not only about an end to police brutality but also a call to end bad governance in the country.
He said Nigerians were tired of suffering and smiling, pointing out that peaceful protest was the only way to cry out and let the world know that everyone was tired of bad governance in the country.
Said he: “The protest is a natural cause. The oppressed are already tired of being oppressed. The protest is about ending police brutality in the country. Nigerians are tired of suffering and smiling.
“We are seeking for our rights to be treated as one because we are the tax payers. We are the ones paying these government officials. There are lots of cases of injustice in this country because these police officers treat people badly.
“The oppression is just too much, for instance, if a young person is seen wearing dreadlocks, has tattoos or earrings just like I do, the person is automatically labelled a thief or fraudster. This end SARS movement isn’t the main problem because people could have called an end to the protest since a new unit has been created.
“There are other sensitive things they want to talk about. They are tired of bad governance.
