By Amie T. Camara
Afrinity Production discloses the United States Government condemning of the shooting of unarmed #EndSARS protesters in the Lekki area of Lagos State.
In a tweet on Thursday, the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, equally called for the prosecution of those involved in the shooting.
“The United States strongly condemns incidents of military forces firing on unarmed protestors in Lagos,” Pompeo tweeted.
He added: “Those involved should be held to account under the law. We extend our condolences to the victims of the violence and their families.”
The #EndSARS protest which has lasted about two weeks took a different dimension on Tuesday evening as soldiers opened fire on the protesters in the Lekki area of Lagos State.
This was a few hours after the Lagos State Government announced a curfew to curb the protest which was increasingly gaining momentum.
