Nigerian-born Kaycee Madu, recently appointed as Minister of Justice and Solicitor-General of Alberta in Canada, has endorsed the #EndSARS protest in Nigeria.

“I support the people of Nigeria as they protest to end police brutality and extrajudicial killings,” Mr. Madu stated via his Twitter.

Giving a reason for his endorsement of the demonstration, the solicitor-general revealed that his cousin was a police brutality victim in Nigeria.

The Alberta Minister of Justice said, “My own cousin Chrisantus Nwabueze Korie was murdered by Nigerian police in April 2013”.

Madu also stated in his tweet thread on Saturday that despite his best efforts, the police would not investigate the murder and did everything to obstruct the process of obtaining justice.

He said he also helped petition a committee of Nigeria’s National Assembly to probe the killing and report back to the House promptly.

While arguing that fundamental human rights like peace, security, and freedom from police brutality are universal, the Nigerian-born lawyer noted the government must protect its citizens and deliver substantive police reform.

According to him, changing the name of SARS and reconstituting it without significant reform won’t be sufficient to satisfy the Nigerian people’s cry for justice.

Quoting Edmund Burke, the minister encouraged all Nigerians to stand up and be heard, stressing that “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
