Don Jazzy and Toyin Abraham

 

Music producer Don Jazzy and movie actress Toyin Abraham on Saturday joined other Nigerians to protest over the brutality and killing by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

This comes after several protests by Nigerian, decrying the constant harassment from SARS operatives and lamentations at the rate at which young creatives are being battered and killed by police officers.

“I am more than my movies, I am an instrument for change and a destiny implementer,” Toyin posted on her Instagram handle, sharing a video of herself and other protesters. “You can do this. love you all.”

Don Jazzy equally took to the social media platform to share a video of himself joining the protesters.

The #EndSARS protests continued in several parts of the country on Saturday with the Italian club, AS Roma, and Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, backing the calls for the prospection of the anti-robbery unit of the Nigeria Police.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on Friday asked the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu to address concerns raised by Nigerians about SARS officers but called for calm among the protesters.

“I appeal for patience and calm, even as Nigerians freely exercise their right to peacefully make their views known”.

The activities of the police unit have come under scrutiny with members of the squad accusing them of using their position to trample on the rights of citizens, especially the youths.

Nollywood Star, Aimakhu Now To Be Called Toyin Abraham

Toyin Aimakhu, Yoruba Star, Toyin Abraham.Nollywood actress, Toyin Aimakhu, has made a new turn as she changes her name to Toyin Abraham.

Stating her reason for the decision, the actress said “It is a family decision and I will like to be officially addressed as Toyin Abraham henceforth”.

Sources said she has refused to speak further about what necessitated the move.

It is believed that the change of name might not be unconnected to a number of scandals, one of which is the case of her ex-lover, Seun Egbegbe.

Egbegbe, a film producer, allegedly stole nine iPhones in a shop at the popular Computer Village Ikeja area of Lagos State, southwest Nigeria.

However, he purportedly told policemen investigating the incident which occurred in November that he had no intention to steal the phones.

Egbegbe said he had stepped into his vehicle to pick some money when the sales boy raised the alarm.
