KanyiDaily had reported that there is an ongoing #EndSARS protest across the country against the SARS tactical unit of the Nigerian Police Force over brutality, illegal arrest, extortion, extra-judicial killings, among others.

In an open letter shared on her Instagram on Friday, the multiple-award winning movie star urged the president to speak up and bring erring operatives of the unit to justice.

Recounting how her 13-year-old niece was harassed by operatives of the SARS for carrying ‘her own laptop’, Genevieve wrote:

“My niece was harassed by SARS for carrying a laptop. Her own laptop. She was slapped across the face for simply asking why her laptop was being seized. At only 13, she had to deal with police brutality. Complaints were made and nothing was done.”

Wondering why the president remained silent despite the ongoing protest against police brutality, the 41-year-old actress called on Buhari to address the nation as his “house is not in order and way far from stable.”

“Mr President, I urge you to speak to us because we are not mind readers. Your house is not in order and way far from stable. The people aren’t being empowered, neither are they being protected. We are not all criminals and should not be treated as such.

“No one is spared and we are all affected. Mr President, this is the current state of your country. What our country is today is a reflection of your leadership, your legacy. I’m getting weary and tired of being optimistic about change but even then can’t complain,” she added.
