Former Vice Presidential candidate, Peter Obi has reacted to the reported killings of #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate and other parts of the country.
Recall some protesters were allegedly killed after security agents fired gunshots to disperse the protesters at Lekki tollgate on Tuesday night, October 20.
Reacting on Twitter, Peter Obi condemned the alleged killings, saying shooting of protesters while they were singing the national anthem is “unconscionable”
The former Governor of Anambra state also stated that the lives lost during the gun attack is a ‘collective loss’ to the nation and not just to their families who are grieving.
The killing of peaceful protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate and other parts of the country yesterday is condemnable. It should not have happened.
To imagine that young people seeking to enthrone a better Nigeria where shot at even while they were singing the national anthem is unconscionable. We cannot be wasting precious lives that represent the foundation of our future. It is not just a loss to the families who are grieving, but the collective loss of our nation.
My deepest condolences to the families and friends of all those affected. May their souls rest in peace and their memory a blessing. -PO
