Manchester United football player Odion Ighalo said he is ashamed of the Nigerian government after reports emerged that soldiers shot dead protesters after shooting at them in the Lekki district of the commercial capital Lagos on Tuesday.

Nigerians have been demonstrating for nearly two weeks against the now-disbanded police unit, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), that rights groups had for years accused of extortion, harassment, torture and murders.

The unit was disbanded on October 11 but the protests have persisted.

In a Twitter post, the Nigerian Army said no soldiers were at the scene of the shooting.

Nigerian Ighalo said in a video message on Twitter that while he rarely talks about politics he could not stay silent about events back home.

 

“The Nigerian government, you guys are a shame to the world for killing your own citizens, sending military to the streets to kill unarmed protesters because they are protesting for their own rights? It’s uncalled for,” he said.

“You people will be remembered in history as the first government to send the military to the city to start killing their own citizens. I am ashamed of this government, we are tired of you guys and we can’t take this any more.”

Ighalo called on the United Kingdom government and world leaders “to please see what’s going on in Nigeria and help us”.

“They will keep killing if the world don’t talk about this,” he added.
