Former American Secretary of State and Democratic candidate in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to stop killing #EndSARS protesters.
Her call was a direct response to killings of at least 10 unarmed #EndSARS protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian army at Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
This was hours after the take off of the 24-hours curfew imposed on the state by governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State.
Writing on her verified Twitter handle, Clinton wrote, “I’m calling on @Mbuhari and the @hqnigerianarmy to stop killing young #EndSARS protesters”.
Although governor Sanwo-Olu has promised to look into the circumstances that led to the incident, most respondents on social media, however, held him responsible for the killings.
