Spartak Moscow’s summer signing Victor Moses has dedicated his first Russian Premier League goal to #EndSARS protesters in Nigeria.
The versatile former Super Eagle opened his account for the Red and Whites in their 3-1 victory over Krasnodar on Saturday.
There have been protests in Nigeria in recent weeks over the activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a controversial police unit in Nigeria.
Protesters are also calling for an end to bad governance and poor economic conditions in the country and although the government disbanded SARS a few days after the protest started, it continued.
On Tuesday, men in military camouflage fired at protesters at Lekki toll gate in Lagos, killing 12 people, according to Amnesty International.
Moses believes Nigerians have the right to express their grievances through protest without having to lose their lives for it, and lent his support to the campaigners by dedicating his maiden goal in the Russian top-flight to them.
“Brilliant win today and delighted to get my first goal for the club,” Moses tweeted.
“I dedicate my goal today to the people of Nigeria. Enough is enough! Nigerians have the right to protest and not be killed for it. Pray for Nigeria.”
