I’m writing this post with sadness, tears and a broken heart.
Earlier this week, I made a post about the ongoing protest in Nigeria which you can find more about using the hashtag #EndSARS on Twitter. This protest has been going on for 12 days now and today a mass murder happened.
Fire was opened on peaceful protesters that were holding the Nigeria Flag while singing the national anthem.
I watched my brothers and sisters been murdered in cold blood. These videos will forever be in my head and heart. Today is such a very sad day for we the Nigerian youths.
Friends and families were crying and calling their injured loved ones to stay with them while they were slowly giving up on life.
I saw a video of a young man singing the national anthem with bullet in his leg and his last words were “PEACE AND UNITY” from the national anthem.
People are scared to sleep in their homes. I’m really scared. Videos are online of people shutting down the toll gate CCTV where the massacre had taken place. The lights went off on one of the busiest road in lagos and the shooting started. They didnt shoot in the air to scared protesters away, they shot directly at protesters all for demanding fa better country.
I read they are trying to shut down the internet. If you reading this, please go on Twitter and search for the hashtag #EndSARS and retweet.
Please for my country, Nigeria.
Innocent blood are been wasted. We lost a lot of lives today.
