First Black Canadian Minister, Kelechi Madu Painfully Narrates How His Beloved Cousin Was Killed By The Nigerian Police-See Photos.

Nigerian-born Kelechi ‘Kaycee’ Madu, the first black minister in Canada has declared his support for the #EndSARS and police brutality campaign ongoing in Nigeria.

Taking to his official Twitter account on Saturday, October 17, Madu who is the Minister of Justice and Solicitor General narrated how his cousin was killed in 2013 by the Nigerian Police.

He tweeted;

“I support the people of Nigeria as they protest to end police brutality and extrajudicial killings. My own cousin Chrisantus Nwabueze Korie was murdered by Nigerian police in April 2013.

“Despite my best efforts, the police would not investigate his murder and did everything to obstruct. I also helped to petition a committee of Nigeria’s National Assembly to probe the killing and report back to the House within a timely manner.

“Fundamental human rights like peace, security and freedom from police brutality are universal. The Nigerian government has an obligation to protect its citizens and deliver substantive police reform.

“Changing the name of SARS and reconstituting it without significant reform won’t be sufficient to satisfy the cry of the Nigerian people for justice.

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