In a video uploaded on his official Twitter handle, Ighalo begged world leaders to come to the aid of Nigerians while describing Nigerian government as ‘killers’
His words, “I am sad and heart broken.I am not the kind og guy that talks about politics, but I can’t keep quiet any longer…today is 20th of October, 2020 and you people will be remembered in Nigeria’s history as the first government that sent military to the city to start killing their own citizen,
I am ashamed of this government; we are tired of you guys and we can’t take this anymore; I am calling on world leaders, UN, UK government to help poor Nigerians back home.. this government are killers, they will keep killing, if the world doesn’t talk about it, God bless you all, one Nigeria! We move!”
