I support the people of Nigeria as they protest to end police brutality and extrajudicial killings. My own cousin Chrisantus Nwabueze Korie was murdered by Nigerian police in April 2013.
Despite my best efforts, the police would not investigate his murder and did everything to obstruct. I also helped to petition a committee of Nigeria’s National Assembly to probe the killing and report back to the House within a timely manner.
Fundamental human rights like peace, security and freedom from police brutality are universal. The Nigerian government has an obligation to protect its citizens and deliver substantive police reform.
Changing the name of SARS and reconstituting it without significant reform won’t be sufficient to satisfy the cry of the Nigerian people for justice.
Edmund Burke wrote that, “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” I encourage all Nigerians to stand up and be heard.

This madness needs to stop. Governments across our country must take steps to rein in these violent activists. They serve no identifiable good to the cause of justice or equality. 1/5 #ableg #cdnpoli nationalpost.com/news/canada/pr…
No nation or leader is perfect. While we still have work to do, our world has made tremendous progress. I want my daughters and son to learn all of our history – good and bad. That’s how we move forward. 2/5 #ableg #cdnpoli
Many communities - including those with significant populations of immigrants, Indigenous peoples, and other visible minorities - face high rates of crime and rely on the police to serve and protect them each and every day. 3/5 #ableg #cdnpoli
