Former United States Secretary of State and one time presidential candidate of the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, has called on president Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Army to ‘stop killing’ peaceful #EndSARS protesters in the country.

She said this in a Tweet on Tuesday, following the massacre of the protesters at Lekki tollgate in Lagos.

“I’m calling on @mbuhari and the @hqnigerianarmy to stop killing young #EndSARS protesters. #StopNigeriaGovernment,” Clinton tweeted.

Nigerian youths have been demonstrating against police brutality and extrajudicial killings at the Lekki tollgate for over a week, when soldiers attacked them on tuesday night, killing an undisclosed number of people.
