Manchester United star Odion Ighalo has pleaded with the world’s governments to intervene in the democide occurring in his home country of Nigeria.
Africa’s most populous nation has been plagued by violence in recent times as citizens protest against police brutality – with several deaths and shootings reported from the altercations.
The country’s capital Lagos – with an estimated 20 million residents – is set to come under a 24-hour curfew, with other regions already trying to keep their residents indoors.
Following Manchester United’s 2-1 Champions League win against PSG, Ighalo called for the world to take notice of what is happening in Nigeria and pleaded for help stopping the government from killing its own citizens.
