The former Presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton have reacted to the massacre of peaceful protesters at the Lekki-Toll.

In her tweet she said

I’m calling on @mbuhari and the @hqnigerianarmy to stop killing young #EndSARS protesters. #StopNigeriaGovernment

Clinton called on the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), and the Nigerian Army to ‘stop killing’ #EndSARS protesters in the country.

The ex-First Lady made this known on Tuesday night shortly after soldiers reportedly shot at protesters at the Lekki tollgate area of Lagos State.

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


The #EndSARS protesters have been demonstrating against police brutality and extrajudicial killings at the Lekki tollgate for over a week.

Similar demonstrations have been staged in different parts of the state and the country.

Meanwhile, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has ordered an investigation into Tuesday evening incident.


The state commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, made this known in a statement after the attack.


The statement partly read, “There have been reports of shooting at the Lekki Toll Plaza, following the 24-hour curfew imposed on Lagos State to stop criminals who hid under the #EndSARS protests to unleash mayhem on innocent citizens.

“The State Government has ordered an investigation into the incident. Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has advised the security agents not to arrest anyone on account of the curfew, which he urges residents to observe for the peaceful atmosphere we all cherish.”
