Nigerian rapper rapper Azeez Fashola, better known by his stage name Naira Marley, will on Tuesday morning lead a protest against a notorious unit in the police force.
The Special Anti Robbery Squad (Sars) has been accused of atrocities against innocent civilians and routine harassment.
Recall the Police chief Mohammed Adamu, on Monday banned the unit from carrying out stop and search duties and setting up roadblocks.
The hashtag #EndSARS had been trending on Twitter, triggered by the alleged killing of a young man by officers from the unit in the city of Lagos on Saturday.
Naira Marley tweeted that the "peaceful protest" in the commercial capital, Lagos, will start at 09:00 local time:
On Monday, the country’s Minister of Youth, Sunday Dare, had urged the musician not to embark in the protest.
