Former United States Vice President, Joe Biden, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian military to cease the violent crackdown on protesters in Nigeria, which has already resulted in several deaths.
My heart goes out to all those who have lost a loved one in the violence. The United States must stand with Nigerians who are peacefully demonstrating for police reform and seeking an end to corruption in their democracy.
I encourage the government to engage in a good-faith dialogue with civil society to address these long-standing grievances and work together for a more just and inclusive Nigeria.
And moreover, “It is unconstitutional for Military to killed unarmed protesters in Nigeria, who are peacefully protesting for good governance for their well-being as a citizens.”
