EndSARS group receives over N77m in one week


Feminist Coalition, a not-for-profit organisation and one of the leading supporters of the #EndSARS campaign, says it has received over N77m cash donations in favour of the ongoing protests against police brutality and extrajudicial killings by men of the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force.

The group, whose objectives include “fighting injustice through peaceful protests, fundraising, and social media organisation” disclosed this in a statement on Thursday titled, ‘Progress Report – October 15th, 2020’.


It said the funds were raised “through the generosity of well-meaning people and concerned Nigerians who want their voices to be heard and their demands to be met.”

The statement partly read, “Over the past week, there has been a peaceful uprising by the Nigerian youth, demanding for the disbandment of the notorious SARS unit, and the end to police brutality and an unjust judicial system.

“Like everyone else, we decided to play our part and help fight the injustice through fundraising in order to sustain the peaceful protests and ensure the safety of Nigerians exercising their civic rights – by providing food, water and other refreshments, masks, medical aid, and legal aid for protesters.


“We have raised a total sum of: NGN 62,643,663.05; USD 11,474.34 (N4.3m), CAD 5,595.89 (N1.6m), GBP 5,733.49 (N2.8m), EUR 875.42 (N390,225), GHS 1,256.70 (N81,823), KES 53,016.60 (183,656) and BTC 1.28827988 (N5.5m).

“With these funds, we have supported 100 peaceful protests in 25 states, paid NGN 759,080 in medical bills for injured protesters, donated NGN 400,000 to the families of victims murdered by police officers while protesting peacefully, paid NGN 500,000 in legal aid and spent N 11,367,500 on supplies including food, water, mask among other things for the peaceful protesters.”


The PUNCH had earlier reported that the founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, expressed support for the #EndSARS protests when he shared a tweet by @Feministcoalition which had how to make donations to the campaign.

Youths have been protesting against police brutality and killings for over one week, grounding economic activities in major parts of the country.

And people have not even started giving yet.
Wait until when gifting money to #EndSARS become a fad.
Wait - and they are not embezzling money here.
All accounted for.
Without any 'leader'
Feeding thousands daily
Repairing cars govt thugs battered
Flying ambulances to protest sites
Hiring mobile toilets
Keeping everywhere clean
In this same Nigeria
And only N11m spent
When my bros of cousin, of bros was doing wedding of 1 day,
He spent more than that.
#EndSARS - we run things like ants, Pa Buhari, come and learn!

Always revert to Fmr. President Jonathan's video of him asking Nigerians to choose wisely in making choice of moving forward or backward. We occupied then in 2012, now we must chase this government out.

People are donating o.
By the time people are sure of better palliatives (food) at venues of these protests nationwide compared to the one FG did during peak of Covid19 lockdown which didn't appear transparent to some then know certainly that there won't be any form of control on the people again.
