‘My own cousin Chrisantus Nwabueze korie was murdered by Nigerian police’ – Nigerian-born Canadian minister endorses #EndSARS protest

Kaycee Madu, a Nigerian-born Canadian minister has expressed his support for the #EndSARS movement while citing personal experience. 

In a series of tweets, Madu said that he lost his cousin, Chrisantus Korie to police brutality in April 2013. He also said that his cousin’s murder was not investigated by the police and all efforts to get justice proved abortive.

He wrote: “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.”
