Australian High Commissioner Apologizes for Tweet on EndSARS Protests

Australia’s High Commissioner to Nigeria Claire Ireland, who tweeted advising Nigerian youth to avoid violent #Endsars protests in the country, met with some disdain from Nigerians on Twitter for claiming the protests were violent and now being released. excuses

REVISED MSG ⚠️ ℹ️: Protests are taking place in Abuja, Lagos and elsewhere in Nigeria. Avoid these protests and follow the advice of local authorities.

I would like to apologize for the previous post. We didn’t mean to imply that the protests were violent in general. We respect the right of people to protest peacefully.
