Nigeria and the Police needs a reform- Angela Okorie speaks on ENDSARS protests

Published

on

Popular Nigerian Actress, Angela Okorie has stated that the Nigerian government needs to do right by its people.

Her comments come following the #ENDSARS protests that happened in Nigeria two months ago.

In October this year, Nigerians took to the streets to  protest against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a unit of the Nigeria Police Force, after a video emerged of officers allegedly killing a man.

The hashtag #EndSARS began trending worldwide as protests continued across the West African country.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari announced that SARS will be disbanded, but the violence escalated with a reported massacre at the Lekki toll gate.

Speaking on the events during her recent visit to Ghana with Ameyaw TV’s Zeinat Issahaku, the Nollywood screen goddess, turned musician who led several protests in her home state at the time, stated that the Nigerian youth had woken up from their slumber and are ready to hold their government accountable.

” The lies is too much. They’re expecting me not to talk but I’m definitely going to because I led the protests in my state too and it was peaceful. You can’t be killing innocent souls and the truth of the matter is this government needs to listen to the people now because these same people put them there. So there’s no way you are going to keep being adamant about the whole thing at the expense of poeople’s lives. They need to compensate the families of the people that were killed. They need to listen to the youth,” she stated.

Narrating her own experience with the police in Nigeria, Angela explained that indeed, the police task force needs a reform.

“The truth of the matter is, they need to reform the police, they need to reform Nigeria for our country to be back again. When the Lekki toll gate massacre happened, I cried for 2 hours straight and for three days I could not sleep,” she added.

Angela Okorie was in Ghana two weeks ago to promote her new album, “Burst Everywhere” streaming now on all platforms.
