International celebrities including Nicki Minaj and Naomi Campbell have joined others to condemn the killing of unarmed protesters by soldiers at Lekki toll gate yesterday.
As the End SARS protesters sat, singing the national anthem and waving the flag, the light at the Lekki toll gate was put off not long after the security cameras at the same toll gate were removed. Then, protesters were shot at. Some were killed and even more were injured.
A number of people outside Nigeria have condemned the killing, including former US presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton.
Other celebrities like Rihanna, Beyonce, footballer Mikel Obi’s wife, Olga Allegra have also joined in condemning the killings. They shared a photo of the Nigerian flag stained with the blood of victims of the Lekki toll gate massacre alongside their posts.
Standing with & praying for the brave young people of Nigeria who are on the front lines of this senseless violence. Your voice is being heard. ?? #EndSARS
