Nigerian singer, Runtown has lent a voice to the outcry over the prevalent killings and kidnappings that have been recorded across the country in the last few weeks.
Pondering on the number of protests to engage in before the issue of SARS officers killing innocent citizens is addressed, the singer lashed out at Nigerian authorities over report of a cleaner allegedly killed by a SARS officer. Runtown also stated that Nigeria is becoming a nightmare and not the country of our dreams.
What exactly is going on? How is it that after the several outcries and well documented incidences we are yet to curb this menace? The people are being pushed the wall. People cannot continue to lose their loved ones like this.
