It’s no longer news how Nigerians suffer a high level of brutality by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and how some celebrities come out to openly criticise this inhuman act. Well Seun Kuti, popular Nigerian AfroBeat Music Act/ one time Grammy Nominnee is the latest celebrity to give his thoughts on this issue and he thinks their menace will continue because Nigerians think it is okay.
The Grammy nominee singer made this known during an interview with Sahara Reporters. According to him, these special police officers are only doing what they were ordered to do.
“If you think there is a problem with SARS then there is a problem with you. SARS is doing what they are paid to do, they are doing exactly what they are ordered to do. You don’t understand the attitude and psychology behind our behaviour but we all want to cry, the victim. SARS is the manifestation of our own acceptance of our dehumanization. As black people, one thing we should know is that we are entitled to be everything that humanity is, especially the bad and still be considered human being. No matter what you do, you are still a human being, this is what humans do,” he said.
