Nigeria is under a military rule – Chelsea football star, Antonio Rüdiger reacts to Lekki tollgate shooting

Chelsea defender, Antonio Rüdiger has also reacted to the Lekki tollgate gun attack after peaceful #EndSARS protesters were shot at by Nigerian army on Tuesday night, October 20.

The German International center-back stated that the situation in Nigeria has nothing to do with democracy as he noted that it’s more like a military rule which he says is a violation of human rights at the highest order.

The defender wrote:

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@mbuhari 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
