Jack Dorsey, the Chief executive of Twitter has joined the push aimed at disbanding the Special Anti-Robbery (SARS) and putting an end to police brutality in Nigeria.
In a tweet on late Wednesday, urged all concerned to make donations via Bitcoin in support of the cause which has seen many Nigerians take to the street in protest.
The Twitter CEOs call is one of several made by various international groups, organizations, and celebrities from around the world.
It comes on the heels of a protest that has evolved daily, with hashtags changing incessantly.
In the earlier days of the demonstrations, many young Nigerians took to the streets to protest the brutality and injustice they have encountered at the hands of SARS officials.
Thousands of Nigerians continue to march across major cities to demand an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, or SARS, a police unit accused of extrajudicial killings and abuses. The government announced Sunday the unit will be disbanded, but many Nigerians are skeptical, as officials have promised an end to the unit and its alleged abuses before.
