For several days, young Nigerians have been campaigning for the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) which has spiralled into street protests across several cities in Nigeria.

Nigerians in the diaspora were not left out as hundreds of Nigerians took to the Nigeria High Commission in London to join the protest back home.

Wizkid pulled up to the protest and addressed the crowd present.

At the time of his address, the Inspector General of Police had already announced the disbandment of SARS and the 30-year-old said it was a sign that Nigerian youths have a voice.

For Nigerians youths, don’t let anyone tell you you don’t have a voice,” he told the crowd.
