“I am sad and heartbroken; I don’t know where to start from,” the Manchester United striker said in a Twitter video.
He added, “Today, October 20, 2020, you people will be remembered in history as the first government that sent the military to the city to start killing their own citizens.”
“I can’t keep quiet anymore on what is going on back home in Nigeria. I will say Nigerian government, you guys are a shame to the world for killing your own citizens; sending the military to the streets to kill unarmed protesters, it is uncalled for.
“I am ashamed of this government, we are tired of you guys, and we can’t take this anymore.”
