UFC welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman has called out President Buhari over his loud silence following days of #EndSARS protests. The protests turned ugly when protesters were attacked by the army during protests in Lekki, Lagos.
In a video, Kamaru expressed his displeasure at the turn of events while calling on President Buhari to break his needless silence on the issue.
Below are excerpts of his comments:
“It is tough right now for me to understand what is going on in my own country and just how things have gotten to the point. This is something that has been a long time in the works, it has been a long time coming dating back to my father’s generation. This is something that has been a long time coming but as things start to unfold, it is so heartbreaking to watch, all the destruction and chaos that is going on right now.
“Where is our president? Where is Mr President? Where are you Mr President? Buhari, how is it that these last days are lasting for more than two-three days before you take notice? How is this going on for so long to the point that you cannot just come out, open your arms and talk to your children, talk to your country? Talk to us. We are all your children, Mr Buhari. How is it that you cannot just come out; lay it out for us?”
