Odion Jude Ighalo is a Nigerian professional footballer who plays as a striker for English Premier League Club Manchester United.
In a video sighted by Vesta Daily, he has added his voice to the ongoing protest in Nigeria against police brutality (#EndSARS).
He said that Nigerian governments are a shame to the world. For killing its own citizens and sending the military to kill unarmed protesters, protesting for their own rights.
“20-10-20 shall be remembered in the history of Nigeria as the first government to send military to start killing their own citizens. It’s a shame on this government. We are tired of you guys and we can’t take this anymore.” He said
He went ahead to call on the UK government and leaders of the world to come to the aid of Nigerians.
He added, “The government is killing their own citizens, we are calling the UN to see to this matter.”
He later cautioned all Nigerians to stay and remain safe. And to be indoors during this period of curfew. Because “those governments are killers. They will keep killing if the world does not talk about this.”
