Celebrities blast Buhari, Sanwo-Olu over Lekki shooting

Nigerian celebrities have called out President Muhammadu Buhari and the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, referring to them as ‘murderers’ after peaceful protesters were shot at by the military at the Lekki toll gate -- the protest ground of #EndSars protest.

According to reports, people were killed and several sustained injuries from gunshots after the security cameras and street lights were put out at the scene earlier.

This is coming after a curfew was imposed by the Lagos State Government starting from 4 pm but was later moved to 9 pm.

However, the protesters were still at the venue of the protests before security operatives stormed the place and opened fire on them.

Reacting on what has now become a world news, celebrities like Omoni Oboli, Genenvieve Nnaji, M.I and more had this to say....

Omoni Oboli while reacting on twitter wrote; ''All we want is a better Nigeria. If you don’t want that, you are an enemy of Nigeria! #EndBadGoveranceInNigeria #EndSars

''They are shooting at the peaceful  protesters at Lekki toll. Please help

''People are dying already!!! Peaceful and unarmed protesters at Lekki phase toll gate. Please retweet #EndSARS''


Rapper M.I wrote; ''It is today I truly understood it.. I have to be prepared to die!!  They are ready to kill.. so to change them you have to be prepared to die'

They forgot there is internet and Instagram live to capture their atrocities. Sanwo Olu, Tinubu, Buhari. God will punish you ALL...''


Ayo Sogunro wrote; ''Sanwoolu smiled and asked for youth representatives on #EndSARS . What a joke.

''Next time he asks for representatives for his fake panel, tell him the army shot the people we selected.''
