British-Nigerian heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, has said that it’s time for change to happen in Nigeria.
This is as he expressed displeasure at the shooting of #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate on Tuesday.
He made his concerns known in a series of tweets after the incident.
Replying to Femi Anikulapo-Kuti’s tweet about being angry about current happenings in Nigeria, the boxer said, “Change will happen! It’s time.” He attached Nigeria’s flag to the tweet.
Anikulapo-Kuti earlier tweeted, “Got off the phone to @anthonyfjoshua. He is angry and we need to speak with one voice #EndSARS #EndBadGoveranceInNigeria #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeraNOW.”
Joshua wondered why people in Nigeria would be killed for demanding peace.
He tweeted, “The situation has escalated, the violence and killings are horrendous. All because of people saying they want to live in peace?
“I pray God opens the gates for the heroes of Nigeria! This was never a trend for me! It’s real life and I want to learn how to make lasting change.
“I’m looking at hospitals to support, along with food and care packages in the time being.”
