Buhari’s Wife, Daughter Identify with #EndSARS Campaign
Wife of Nigeria’s president, Aisha Buhari, on Saturday tweeted a song from an indigenous Hausa musician urging the President Muhammadu Buhari to rescue the northern region from the spate of insecurity that has weighed it down for years.
The 22-second music video shows the images of four military chiefs and the inspector-general of police during security meetings with President Buhari at the presidential villa.
Aisha tweeted the song with the hashtag, #achechijamaa, which means ‘save the people.’
The unidentified singer was sying in the song: “Baba, please for God’s sake/ Consider our pleas for help/ Baba, please defend us/ The North is crying/ They are killing our people/They are burning our property/ Baba, please.”
Also, the daughters of President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo have indicated their support for the campaign against the Special Armed Robbery Squad (SARS).
Zahra Buhari-Indimi posted a clenched fist on her Instagram status with the #EndPoliceBrutality hashtag.
Osinbajo’s daughter, Kiki Osinbajo, posted the same photo on Instagram with the caption: “Police Brutality Must End Now… #EndPoliceBrutality #EndSARS.”
Protests against police brutality have occupied the country for about a week now, and a body of northern elders on Saturday urged the federal government to order an “independent forensic investigation into the expenditure of the Armed Forces from December 2015 till date.”
