Nollywood actress Angela Okorie, who has been offline for over a month, has resurfaced again while writing an open letter to President Buhari, asking him to listen to young Nigerians by eliminating FSARS without further delay.
Okorie’s letter came a few days after the lead actress, Genevieve Nnaji, also wrote a similar letter to the president.
In a post on her Instagram page on Sunday, Okorie said that she can’t keep quiet anymore because she doesn’t want to be online right now for reasons she knows best.
The fair-skinned actress, however, urged President Buhari to hear the cry of young Nigerians, who are faced with one thing in particular. According to her, there are many things that the country lacks, but they do not ask for them now. But only to end SARS so they can live in the country in peace.
She wrote: “I cannot deny that I do not know what is happening in the country, and I feel that it is the right time to use my platform to speak. “
“Nigerian youth are not protesting for food, good roads, jobs, lights and other social services that you know are the things that we also lack in the country; what we ask with one voice is that the government # Endsars # Endpolicebrutality ”.
“We are scared, we are tired of the innocent killings here and there, displayed on all social media platforms, your silence will only make things worse, you need to talk to people. Don’t make us believe that our president is a ghost. “
“Mr. President, sir, we are not mind readers. We don’t know what you have in mind. But the fact is, the innocent lost souls are our brothers and sisters. The daily killings and harassment of SARS are heartbreaking, excruciating and sad. Enough is enough. The killings and harassment have to stop, ”wrote Okorie.
