German international, Antonio Rudiger has expressed disappointment in the way and manner in which the federal government through the Nigerian army reacted to peaceful protestors at Lekki.
In a series of tweets sighted by thehubgh.com, the Chelsea centre back expressed shock in the recent happenings in connection to how peaceful protestors are been treated by Nigerian security agencies.
According to him, considering the actions of the Nigerian government through the security agencies, it has nothing to do with democracy.
The 27-year-old footballer described the political landscape of Nigeria as a military regime and “and it’s a violation of human rights at the highest order.”
Antonio Rudiger perturbed by the chaos in Nigeria called on President Buhari and the Nigerian army to “stop killing peaceful young protesters. Stop killing the people you are supposed to protect.”
He asserted that the protestors didn’t ask for war but rather a better Nigeria which the government has failed to give.
