Foreign celebrities have condemned the attack on  Nigerian protesters who were gathered at the Lekki toll gate to protest police brutality in Nigeria.

Nigerians have been protesting against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a unit of the Nigeria Police Force, after a video emerged of officers allegedly killing a man. The hashtag #EndSARS began trending worldwide as protests continue across the West African country. Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari announced that SARS will be disbanded, but the violence has escalated in recent days.

On Tuesday night, Nigerian security forces opened fire on protesters in Lagos, killing several people as the government sought to end two weeks of marches against police brutality.

As the End SARS protesters sat, singing the national anthem and waving the flag, the light at the Lekki toll gate was put off not long after the security cameras at the same toll gate were removed. Then, protesters were shot at. Some were killed and even more were injured.

Naomi Campbell, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Jidenna, Kanye West, Big Sean, Trey Songz, and Lil Baby among others have also joined in condemning the killings.

See some post below.
