Ghanaian celebrities have waded into the #Endsars protest going on in Nigeria as they have called on the chairman of ECOWAS and President of Ghana Nana Addo to intervene.
Celebrities like Nana Aba Anamoah, Yvonne Nelson, Lydia Forson and Sandra Ankobiah are among the many stars who are waiting for action to be taken by President Akufo-Addo.
Demonstrations against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) began earlier this month and erupted after a video circulated online showing a man being beaten brutally by the police for no reason.
SARS has reportedly been terrorizing the ordinary citizens, especially the youth, and even killing some.
Being the head of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) now, many Ghanaian celebrities believe Akufo-Addo is in a better position to help protect the poor protesters.
Below are some of their comments on social media
1. Nana Aba Anamoah: In a series of tweets which she later shared on Instagram, Nana Aba asked for some action from Akufo-Addo as the ECOWAS head.
2. Lydia Forson: Actress Lydia Forson also cited the Trump case and reactions from African leaders
3. Yvonne Nelson: The actress was wondering where the ECOWAS and African Union (AU) and other leaders are at the moment
4. Sandra Ankobiah: The celebrity lawyer also sent a direct message to Akufo-Addo urging him to show empathy to the youth of Nigeria
