Famous Nigerian-British boxer, Anthony Joshua has thrown his weight behind the #EndSARS protests across the country, saying ‘it is beneficial for the next generation.’
He also promised to support hospitals and care facilities as part of his efforts to help the ongoing movement for reforms across the country.
He disclosed these, in a series of tweets, which he posted on his Twitter handle.
‘In my prayers at night, I’m praying for peace and positivity. I know the people on the ground aren’t trying to be heard for their own benefit, it’s for the benefit of the next generation.’
‘I am sending care packages to the country, because I am unable to travel to Nigeria. But I plan to go there to help more, when I am through with my next fight, against Kubrat Pulev on December 12.’
‘The situation has escalated, the violence and killings are horrendous. All because of people saying they want to live in peace?’
“I pray God opens the gates for the heroes of Nigeria! This was never a trend for me! It’s real life and I want to learn how to make lasting change.
“I’m looking at hospitals to support, along with food and care packages in the time being.”
