Braved Nigerians under the rain to protest the murder of George Floyd and also call for an end to racism and injustice.
The lead of the peaceful protest was Mrs. Josephine Okpara under the organization named Blacks Lives Matter Movement in Nigeria (BLMMN).
They stormed the whole streets of Victoria Island, Lagos State, with their posters.
In the placards they were carrying, boldly written them “Black Lives Matter” and “Justice For George Floyd” as they condemned the killing of African Americans in the United States of America.
This protest comes after the incident that took the life of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for nearly 9minutes during an arrests.
Speaking on behalf of the group, convener, Josephine Okpara said the US must put an end to “white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on black communities by the state and vigilantes”.
Nigerians across various social media platforms were not impressed by the protest. They mentioned that we have more pressing issues in the country to protest, and they criticized the protesters.
