Daniel Amokachi, former Super Eagles player, on Saturday, urged Nigerians to ‘take a knee’ for citizens killed in Southern Kaduna, Katsina, Benue and other parts of the country.
Kneeling on one leg was recently made popular, following the death of George Floyd, a black American, who died last month after a white police officer knelt on his neck during an arrest.
The incident led to violent protests in the United State, with many protesters kneeling to pass a message of ‘Black Lives Matter’ to the government.
Some Nigerians, home and abroad, also participated in the protest, prompting the ex-international to urge them to remember their compatriots killed by Fulani herdsmen, bandits and Boko Haram.
“LET’S TAKE A KNEE FOR THE KILLING IN KADUNA SOUTH, BENUE, ZAMFARA, PORT HARCOURT, KOGI, KATSINA AND MORE #ALLLIVESMATTERS ##BLACKLIFESMATTERS #TAKEASTAND #THEBLACKBULL #KEEPINGITREAL,” Amokachi wrote on Facebook.
