I’m just drawing your attention towards what’s happening in Lagos right now. What’s happening it’s an atrocity, a murder and I’m calling to the leadership of the ECOWAS countries, to African Union, to African leaders to say something to the Nigerian government. You have the power and the reach, and you should do something, say something. People should not be murdered for protesting.
