David Oyelowo’s Thoughts on the #EndSARS Movement and the Current State of Nigeria

David Oyelowo: What’s happening in Nigeria right now has been gestating for a long time. I would argue it’s actually a biproduct of the legacy of colonialism and just the state that Nigeria was left in from 1960 onward. But, regardless of how we got here, we are here and the truth of the matter is that the government have to do better. You cannot have this kind of police brutality sanctioned by the government against the people. And, um, it’s been brewing for a long time.  The great thing is that we now have social media. We see it in movements like Black Lives Matter.  We see it now with #EndSars. It’s harder for these governments to do this outside of the world’s attentions. And I think keeping these governments accountable is key in these moments because it’s just wrong.
