”GUY UR PAPA” – Nigerians blast Anthony Joshua for taking so long before speaking on the #ENDSars situation.
British-Nigerian professional boxer, Anthony Joshua has finally lent his voice on the issue of Police Brutality going on in his fatherland, Nigeria.
This is as he expressed displeasure at the shooting of #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate last night.
The situation has escalated, the violence and killings are horrendous. All because of people saying they want to live in peace?

However Nigerians were angry he waited this long before commenting on such an important issue.
See reactions below ;
You are a failure. We tagged you repeatedly and you chose to ignore. Your silence was loud and we heard it. Which middle ground now? After they have opened fire on unarmed civilians? Lol.
History will remember you for this.

GUY UR PAPA . Na becos shaderoom post am. EWU BRITISH !
It took u too damn long to speak up
We don’t need your support. Y’all be doing like gods because you’re a celeb. If you want to support come to Nigerian and front the protest after all it’s your fatherland too
Talking about Nigeria like it’s not your country…. Ogbeni Soro soke weyreh…
What support exactly is he talking about ? For two weeks now this protest have gone on, where was your voice of support until they started massacring our innocent youths.
You said a lot and at the same time said nothing at all.
Ekaro oo, we’ve come this far without you, so we’re good without this poetry you’re presenting.
