#ENDSARS: John Ogu, Moses Simon, Ahmed Musa show solidarity against Police Brutality

Some Nigerian Super Eagles Players have voiced out their concerns over the recent #ENDSARS Protests that has rocked the country; SOCCER PUNCH can confirm 

Special Anti-Robbery Squad also known as SARS are believed to have harassed and brutalized Nigerian citizens on numerous occasions while carrying out their duties nationwide.

This has lead to Nigerian youths coming out with banners and messages for a protest to voice out their displeasures about the activities of the Anti-Robbery squad on Friday.

In the midst of the protest on Friday, Super Eagles Defender Leon Balogun tweeted on his official account: The reasons for the #EndSARSProtests have just come to my attention via very disturbing images & tweets. It is never good when those charged with protecting the citizens are now terrorising, extorting or even killing the same citizens. I support #EndSarsProtests #EndSars,”

While the likes of Ahmed Musa, Moses Simon and John Ogu also followed suit.

Ahmed Musa: "In a world where genuine love for ourselves seems to be so scarce, I sincerely pray that the right thing is done to put an end to the strife,"

Moses Simon: "The essence of law enforcement agents is to protect lives and properties of citizens. If the citizens they swore to protect are now their preys, then the purpose of its formation is defeated. #EndSARS #End BANDITRY Going on in the north #Togetherwestand,"

John Ogu: “Enough is Enough .. #EndSARS
