Nigerian actress and producer, Funke Akindele-Bello, has supported the #EndSARS protest against police brutality by distributing money for data subscriptions to protesters in the country.
The protest that has been on for over a week now is a call to the Nigerian government to put an end to police brutality in the country.
The citizens accuse the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the police unit of extorting, harassment, abuse of human rights, extrajudicial killings and abuse of power.
In a bid to play her part, Akindele took to microblogging platform Twitter to ask how she can go about the distribution of recharge cards for data subscriptions to some of the protesters.
Twitter has been a major social media platform employed by the youths to communicate their grievances as well as organise the protests that have spread from just Nigeria to other parts of the world.
Asides also helping some of the protesters with data subscriptions, she also sent money to some of her fans who are in need while promoting the #EndSARS protest.
According to her, now is not the time to stay silent and the youths must overcome.
Her generous donations have led fans to trend #AuntyFunke on Twitter.
