#LekkiMassacre: Rihanna and Nicki Minaj condemns killings in Nigeria
The international American singers and rapper respectively, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj have taken to social media to condemn the killing of innocent Nigerian #EndSARS protesters. The duo has spoken up against the brutality of Nigerian police towards innocent Nigerian youths.
The protest against the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) has been ongoing for two weeks without ceasing. every effort to keep the protesters off the street have been fruitless. The government has used thugs, police, and threats to keep the youths off. unfortunately, the youth are not giving ion to their talks not until the governments meet the demand of the people.
Standing with & praying for the brave young people of Nigeria who are on the front lines of this senseless violence. Your voice is being heard. 🇳🇬 #EndSARS

The protest escalated as the police force and thugs have aligned to kill and brutalize innocent #endSARS protesters. Unfortunately, on a Tuesday, history will never forget, the Nigerian army open live fire ammunition to innocent youths after a coordinated attack, as the state government had ordered the removal of CCTV and taken down the power supply to the Lekki tollgate plaza.
Many have been feared dead as scores have been injured. This avoidable scenario has. led many people across the globe condemning the act
