PRAY FOR NIGERIA

Six hours ago the BBC reported that peaceful protest in Lagos Nigeria ended after a major shooting.

SARS (Special Anti Robbery Squad). A group founded by former police commissioner Simeon Danladi Midenda in the 1990’s to fights against police brutality. But that didnt last long. Members of SARS have allegedly been engaging in kidnapping, rape, theft, tourture and other crimes and injustices.
