Black Lives Matter: US Embassy in Nigeria take a knee
Following the death of George Floyd and perceived police brutality to the black community, US Embassy in Nigeria took a knee to show solidarity for the Black Lives Matter protest.
The embassy shared a photo of its staff in Abuja on one knee and captioned it:
“Today at the Embassy, we joined together in 84 seconds of silence in solidarity with those at home and around the world protesting the murders of George Floyd & others. We sincerely hope that all of us will learn from this episode & use it as inspiration to create a better world.”
This is coming after the Lagos office of the embassy issued a warning to Nigerians against embarking on a protest to lament the gruesome murder of George Floyd last week.
