Shatta Wale has pledged his allegiance to friends, family and fans in Nigeria who are fighting against the country's corrupt police unit SARS...

#EndSars has been trending for days after a number of violent attacks on Naija youths have been brought to light. Many are calling for the unit to be disbanded and for the perpetrators to face the law... and justice.

The dancehall star called for action against police brutality in a tweet to his 2,4 million followers.

He posted; "I have been following what’s happening to our people in Nigeria and as someone who believes in freedom and justice, the rise of the streets, I will like to say these things must stop. Police brutality anywhere is a threat to nation building #StopPoliceBrutality #EndSARS."

Shatta also vowed to stand with the youth who are under attack, claiming he has a lot in common with them.

In a separate tweet he posted; "Shatta Wale came from the street and I will stand for the street and vulnerable. The ghetto youth also deserves better. Enough of the killings. We must embrace ourselves and support one another.  The Police is supposed to protect life but not to take life #StopPoliceBrutality"

Meanwhile Naija stars like Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Davido and more have all added their voices - and action - to the cause.

Burna has erected a series of billboards throughout the country as well as a relief fund for victims of police brutality

Meanwhile Tiwa, Davido and Wiz have all taken to the streets to demand action and accountability from the government
