Former Secretary and Presidential candidate of United State Hillary Clinton, has reacted to shooting and killing of EndSARS protesters in Nigeria.
Clinton asked President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigerian Army to stop the killing of #EndSARS protesters immediately.
Info Affairs gathered how Soldiers had invaded the Lekki toll gate area of Lagos earlier on Tuesday, shooting at unarmed protesters.
It was reported that light around the toll plaza went off before the security agents stormed the protesters, shooting sporadically.
Videos from the scene saw many of the injured crying for help.
Many Nigerians berated government for the incident, describing it as unacceptable.
The incident had cascaded into outrage, within and outside the country.
Clinton who was reacting in a tweet on Tuesday night lent her voice in support of those who had condemned the action of the soldiers.
She tweeted “I’m calling on @mbuhari and the @hqnigerianarmy to stop killing young #EndSARS protesters. #StopNigeriaGovernment

In an interviewed with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Nigerian singer, Falz spoke at length about the #EndSARS protest and why SARS was created.
He also outlined the grieviances of the Nigerian youths against the controversial police unit which is centered on “profiling”.
Falz further pointed out that the major issue surrounding the disbandment of the police, is that same claims have been made continuously over the years.
When Amanpour then asked him how much stock he puts in Buhari’s pledges, Falz, who had been shaking his head cynically as the clip played, said: “It’s infuriating, annoying and frustrating. And I think that’s how everyone is feeling right now.
“They have been reforming the police for a long time and we have never seen actual action. They announced that SARS had been disbanded in 2017, 2018, 2019 and now 2020. “They just think we are stupid. It is insensitive.”
