Hillary Clinton, the American politician, has called on the Nigerian government to stop killing demonstrators of # EndSARS.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Clinton made the call in response to the shooting by Nigerian Army officers that took place in the Lagos State killings in the Lekki Toll Gate area. 

I call on @mbuhari and @hqnigerianarmy to stop killing young protesters of # EndSARS. She wrote # StopNigerianGovernment,

According to one of the demonstrators who was still at the scene of the incident at around 10:30 pm, they were demonstrating peacefully when the armed security operatives came and opened fire at them. 

We were demonstrating peacefully after we were addressed by the comedian, AY. There was nothing, and we were all peacefully demonstrating. Then the street lights went off immediately,' he told Channels TV on News @ 10.

"People have begun to fire at us. They were able to remember them, they put on uniforms, they were officers, they were officers. 

We were lying down, raising our flags, telling them that we were peacefully demonstrating, and still they were firing at us directly. 

"It wasn't about driving us out, it was about killing us."
