The Presidential hopeful in the upcoming United States election and the former Vice-President to Barack Obama, Joe Biden has condemned the killings of #EndSARS protesters.
Biden warns Mohammadu Buhari government to stop the violent crackdown on peaceful protesters which has led to several unfortunate deaths.
In a statement titled, ‘Violence in Nigeria’; he said that the United States must stand with Nigerians who are peacefully protesting for police reform and seeking an end to corruption.
The statement read, “I urge President Buhari and the Nigerian military to cease the violent crackdown on protesters in Nigeria, which has already resulted in several deaths. My heart goes out to all those who have lost a loved one in the violence.
“The United States must stand with Nigerians who are peacefully demonstrating for police reform and seeking an end to corruption in their democracy. I encourage the government to engage in a good-faith dialogue with civil society to address these long-standing grievances and work together for a more just and inclusive Nigeria.”
Thousands of angry Nigerian youths have been on the streets calling on the regime of Buhari to bring an end to police brutality and other forms of human rights violations perpetuated by the notorious SARS unit of the Nigerian police force.
However, the peaceful protesters have said they won’t relent until their demands are adequately addressed.
