Barbadian-American singer, Rihanna, has spoken in reaction to the shooting of protesters on Tuesday, in Lekki, Lagos state, Nigeria.
Taking to her official Twitter account, Rihanna said she couldn’t bear to see the torture and brutality that has continued to occur not only in Nigeria but also across the world.
“I can’t bear to see this torture and brutalization that is continuing to affect nations across our planet.
“It is such a betrayal to the citizens, the very people put in place to protect are the ones we are most afraid of being murdered by. My heart is broken for Nigeria. It is unbearable to watch,” she wrote.
She added; “I’m so proud of your strength and for not letting up on the fight for what is right. #EndSARS”.
