Reacting to the shootings, Ighalo in a video shared via his Twitter page, described the Nigerian government as a ‘shame to the world’ over the killing of unarmed protesters at the Lekki toll gate.
He also said that the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration will be remembered in history as the first government that sent military officials to kill its citizens.
