General @MBuhari, and his Chief of Army Staff, Turkur Buratai must be tried for crimes against humanity for directing the army to shoot at peaceful, unarmed #EndSARS protesters at Lekki, Lagos, today. @BorisJohnson, @UKinNigeria, and @IntlCrimCourt you cant stay SILENT anymore— Reno Omokri (@renoomokri) October 20, 2020
