#EndSARS: “To the brave future leaders, I stand with you” – Janet Jackson

American singer and songwriter, Janet Jackson has condemned the mass shooting of #Endsars protesters in the Lekki tollgate area of Lagos.

This is coming following a shootout by the Nigerian Army on Tuesday evening on the #EndSARS peaceful protesters that left many injured.

In a tweet via the microblogging platform Twitter, Janet applauded Nigerian youths on the movement against police brutality and bad governance in the nation.

Jackson said, “To the powerful people of Nigeria, especially to the young, brave, future leaders who have stood fearlessly in the face of corruption and greed, I stand with you.

“For all those who refuse to remain chained to another generation of suffering, I pray to God for your justice and liberation. Enough is truly enough.

“Nigeria is a land of love, beauty, culture, and pride but those who have chosen to murder and brutalise have brought shame to this great nation. Your time is up. Nigeria I pray for you and I love you so much. #EndSARS #LekkiMassacre #EndPoliceBrutality.”
