Black Prime Minister of Justice of Canada reveals how his cousin was killed by Nigerian police (photos)

Black Prime Minister of Justice of Canada Casey Madu has joined the call for police reform in Nigeria.

He called when he told how his cousin was allegedly killed by the Nigerian police in 2013.

In a statement issued in support of the #EndSARS protest aimed at ending police brutality, Casey described how the police would have refused to investigate the murder incident and also made every effort to stop it.

Canada’s Justice Minister added that changing the name of SARS and reinstating it without significant reform would not be enough to satisfy the Nigerian people’s call for justice.

He tweeted; I support the people of Nigeria who are protesting against police brutality and extrajudicial killings. My cousin Chrysantus Nwabuese Corey was killed by the Nigerian police in April 2013.

Despite my best efforts, the police refused to investigate his murder and did their best to stop him. I also helped petition the Nigeria National Assembly committee to investigate the murder and report to the House of Representatives in a timely manner.

Basic human rights such as peace, security and freedom from police brutality are universal. The government of Nigeria has a responsibility to protect its citizens and implement significant police reform.

Changing the name of SARS and reinstating it without significant reforms will not be enough to satisfy the Nigerian people’s call for justice.

Edmund Burke wrote that “the only thing that is necessary for the triumph of evil is to do nothing good people.” I urge all Nigerians to stand up and be heard.
