Feminist Coalition, a group fighting against police brutality, says it is under attack for supporting the ongoing #EndSARS protest across the country.

In a series of Twitter posts on Tuesday, the group said it has raised about N25 million to support the protests.

The Feminist Coalition added that its bank accounts have been blocked, while the lives of its members have been threatened.

“We are raising funds to support #EndSARS protests around Nigeria – to provide resources for our people on the frontline,” the coalition said.


“Today we donated NGN5,520,000 to 26 protests; and hospital bills, food, & other supplies. Total raised: NGN 25,181,051.34. Total disbursed: NGN 8,420,000.

“For demanding an end to police brutality we are now under attack! Our bank account has been deactivated and so has the Flutterwave donation link. Our members lives are also being threatened! #SARSMustEnd.”


Following renewed protests across the country over reports of brutality, harassment and extrajudicial killings by special anti-robbery squad (SARS) operatives, the IGP issued a directive on Sunday, disbanding the unit.

But the protests have continued with activists insisting that more concrete steps must be taken in reforming the police.
