A former First Lady of the United States of America, Hillary Clinton has asked President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Army to stop killing those protesting against the extrajudicial activities of the now-defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
This is coming after Nigerian Soldiers opened fire on peaceful #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate, killing about nine people and injuring so many others on Tuesday night, October 21, 2020.
In a swift reaction on her Twitter page, Mrs Clinton said, “I’m calling on @mbuhari and the @hqnigerianarmy to stop killing young #EndSARS protesters. #StopNigeriaGovernment.”
