What our Nigerian brothers and sisters are going through is painful and all too familiar. For most of my life growing up in South Africa I believed in everything the police did and everything they said but one day many of us learned that many of the things we believed were lies. Today the people of Nigeria are exposing and standing up to their governments lies. We should all support #EndSARS and the movement for a Nigeria free from corruption!
