Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton has shown his support for an end to police brutality and incidences of extra-judicial killings of innocent Nigerian citizens by donning a T-shirt with #EndSARS written on it at his pre-race interview on Sunday.
“I’ve got to show this,” Hamilton, told Sky Sports television at the Portuguese Grand Prix on Sunday, citing that recent events in Nigeria are a human rights crisis.
Hamilton also tweeted:
We all have a responsibility to educate ourselves and raise awareness of the tragedies happening in the world around us and take action where we can. The recent events in Nigeria are a human rights crisis.— Lewis Hamilton (@LewisHamilton) October 25, 2020
