The star is raising money to support those affected by the brutal killings.
Beyonce has joined a growing number of people speaking out against the brutality happening to people in Nigeria, who are protesting over the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (Sars).
According to the BBC, people taking part in the protests against police brutality have been shot dead or wounded in Lagos. The protests have been on-going for over two weeks.
Beyonce has condemned the violence.
The star released a statement on her social media pages.
“ I am heartbroken to see the senseless brutality taking place in Nigeria. There has to be an end to SARS," she wrote.
The 'Pretty Hurts' hitmaker said she has partnered with organisations to offer relief to the most affected.
"We have been working on partnerships with youth organisations to support those protesting for change. We are collaborating with coalitions to provide emergency healthcare, food and shelter," she said.
"To our Nigerian sisters and brothers, we stand with you," she added.
The star has asked all those interested in helping her raise funds to visit her website to donate.
