Chelsea defender Antonio Rüdiger has expressed shock over the killing of some unarmed #ENDSARs protesters at the Lekki tollgate in Lagos on the night of Tuesday, October 21 by the military.

In his post, the sportsman said he is saddened about the unlawful killings at the toll gate, adding that the protesters didn’t ask for war, just for a better Nigeria. 

He expressed disappointment at how the situation has spiraled out of control after he had put out a statement last week condemning police brutality in Nigeria.

He also said the situation in Nigeria has nothing to do with democracy as he noted that it’s more like a military rule which according to him is a violation of human rights at the highest order.

He wrote, “After my short statement about Nigeria already last week I’m now even more shocked about how the situation there has got more and more out of control. This saddens me so much. This has absolutely nothing to do with democracy.

It is more like a military rule and it’s a violation of human rights at the highest order. President@mbuhari and the Nigerian Army, stop killing peaceful young protesters. Stop killing the people you are supposed to protect.

The protesters didn’t ask for war, just for a better Nigeria. #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeria #EndSARS”
