Biden, in a statement on Wednesday called on Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari to stop using Military force on protesters.
VIOLENCE IN NIGERIA – STATEMENT BY VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN
I urge President Buhari and the Nigerian military to cease the violent crackdown on protesters in Nigeria, which has already resulted in several deaths. My heart goes out to all those who have lost a loved one in the violence.
The United States must stand with Nigerians who are peacefully demonstrating for police reform and seeking an end to corruption in their democracy.
I encourage the government to engage in a good-faith dialogue with civil society to address these long-standing grievances and work together for a more just and inclusive Nigeria.
