Some Nigerian celebrities have lent their voices to a social media campaign tagged #WeAreTired, demanding for change in the standard of living in the country.

The movement follows recent happenings in the country ranging from Fulani herdsmen attacks on Northern communities, police brutality, assaults to rape cases.

MDB had earlier reported the arrest of 11 suspects who allegedly raped a 12-year-old girl at Limawa quarters in Dutse Local Government Area of Jigawa state.

Three days ago, 22-year-old Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, who was student at the University of Benin, was raped and killed by her attacker who smashed her in the head with a fire extinguisher, while reading in a church.

Also, on Wednesday, May 27th, 16-year-oldTina Ezekwe was shot dead by a trigger-happy police officer at Iyana-Oworo area of Lagos state.

Christian-dominated communities in Southern Kaduna have also been victims of attacks by armed Fulani herdsmen since the beginning of the year, killing over 200 persons and displacing several others.

Many Nigerians have used Twitter as a change tool to call for Federal Government’s intervention in the inhumane incidents that have been in the news in the past few weeks.

Some celebrities have now come out to join the movement in demand for a better and peaceful society where life and security is more secure.
