This fundraiser was initially set up to support the #EndSars #EndSWAT movement in Nigeria. The protest has come to an end, but after the Lekki Massacre on Tuesday October 20th a lot of destruction took over the city of Lagos. Many businesses were looted, burned, and destroyed as rage took over the city. Additionally, a number of individuals fell victim to ongoing brutality that occurred within the country resulting in injuries or death.  Unlike other countries, many of these small business do not have insurance or access to government relief funds. People have invested all their life savings into their business to make a living and everything is now destructed. I am keeping this GoFund Me open to support those in need - I noticed that a lot of people still want to support the #EndSars movement and fight against police brutality. This is a way to help rebuild the nation and support people during these tough times while the fight to #EndSars continues. Any donation is appreciated regardless of the amount! Please share this link with your family and friends.Despite the distance we can use our voices and donations to do our part for Nigeria. All donations received will go to businesses or individuals affected by civil unrest as a result of the Lekki MassacrePLEASE SHARE THIS GOFUNDME WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS - ANY AMOUNT COUNTS. #ENDSARS #ENDSWAT #WEPIN!!----#EndSARS is a social movement in Nigeria that started on Twitter calling for banning of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a unit of the Nigerian Police Force It is a call to end police oppression and brutality in Nigeria. The protests started as a social media campaign using the hashtag #ENDSARS to demand for Nigeria's government to scrap and end the deployment of Nigeria Police Force Special Anti-Robbery Squad, popularly known as SARS. Within a weekend (9-11 October 2020), the #ENDSARS hashtag had up to 28 million tweets.  Nigerians have shared both stories and video evidence of how members of SARS engaged in kidnapping, murder, theft, rape, torture, unlawful arrests, high-handedness, humiliation, unlawful detention, extrajudicial killings, and extortion.SARS officers profile youths largely based on appearance; mount illegal road blocks, stop and search, arrest without warrant, rape women, extort young Nigerians for driving exotic vehicles and using iPhones. While some claimed victory as the Nigerian Police Force dissolved the Special Anti-Robbery Squad on Sunday, 11 October 2020  others noted similar promises had been made in recent years and the government planned to reassign SARS officers rather than eliminate them entirely.
