Award-winning American singer, Rihanna has lent her voice to the call by thousands of Nigerians protesting against the reopening of the Lekki Toll Gate.
Rihanna took to her Twitter page and wrote;
“Peaceful protest is a human right!! #EndSARS.”
Her tweet was a reaction to a post by Amnesty International Nigeria on their verified Twitter account informing the public about being privy to videos of peaceful protesters being arrested and tortured by the police.
“Amnesty International was informed that several protesters were arrested and have been detained.
Several sources, including video evidence, tell harrowing stories of widespread use of torture and other ill-treatment against detainees. #EndSARS #LekkiTollGateProtest.”
