Nigerians are using Twitter to share stories of the intimidation and torture they face at the hands of men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and the stories are heart wrenching.
The campaign is being promoted with the hashtag #EndSARS and people are seeing to it that it doesn’t end on social media.

Trump has again called it “fake news” but Harry Potter creator has a few words for the Don from the Book of Ecclesiastes.
Manchester United faced Arsenal at Emirates stadium on Saturday night and only one name reverberates across the room. David De Gea!
The Man Utd goalkeeper in that game saved a total of 14 shots from Arsenal leaving the latter’s fans more hopeless than they’ve been in their history of hopelessness.
Twitter’s reactions to De Gea’s saving prowess are too hilarious:
