After my short statement about Nigeria already last week I’m now even more shocked about how the situation there has got more and more out of control. 💔🇳🇬 This saddens me so much. This has absolutely nothing to do with democracy. It is more like a military rule and it's a violation of human rights at the highest order. President @muhammadubuhari and the Nigerian Army, stop killing peaceful young protesters. Stop killing the people you are supposed to protect. The protesters didn’t ask for war, just for a better Nigeria. #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeria #EndSARS #PeaceFirst
