Former United States secretary of states Hillary Clinton on Tuesday night asked President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigerian authorities to stop “killing” those protesting against police brutality.

The wife of former US President, Bill Clinton didn’t hesitate, just after protesters were killed at Lekki Toll Gate by soldiers she took to Twitter to scorn at the current administration.

“I’m calling on @mbuhari and the @hqnigerianarmy to stop killing young #EndSARS protesters,” Clinton wrote, ending her post with #StopNigeriaGovernment.

Witnesses told AFP that shots were fired at the crowd of over 1,000 peaceful demonstrators to disperse them several hours after the authorities declared an open-ended lockdown in Lagos in the face of spiraling protests.

“We were all sitting down, peacefully, and they shut down the lights and the billboards, everyone started screaming,” a protester called Toye told AFP, asking that her full name not be used.

“They came to us, but I don’t know who it was. They were shooting, and everyone was running for his life.”

Another protester, Innocent, said he was helping to ferry the wounded to nearby hospitals.

“Currently I have two people that I rush in my car, a woman and a guy, who are in very critical conditions,” he said.
