A protest is being held at the Castlegate in Aberdeen today to stand in solidarity against police brutality in Nigeria.
The event will start at 1pm and organisers have strongly urged people to bring their own face coverings as they will have a limited supply, and to observe social distancing at all times.
Sars (Special Anti-Robbery Squad) is a controversial police division in Nigeria and since the movement against it has spread, at least 56 people have died – 38 of them on Tuesday, according to Amnesty International.
Ola Akisanya, one of the Aberdeen organisers, said it was important to stand with with the people fighting for their rights in Africa.
He said: “Especially considering this year and the other issues we’ve had, it is very important not to just pick and choose what human rights we stand up for.
“We are standing in solidarity with those who have lost their lives.”
