Osimhen backs #EndSARS protests after first Serie A goal



Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has offered support to protesters against police brutality in Nigeria after he scored his first Serie A goal of the season in Napoli’s 4-1 thumping of Atalanta yesterday.

Thousands of people have taken to the streets of Lagos, Oyo, Abuja and other states in the country over the past week to protest against police brutality.

Osimhen, who had fired blanks in his first two league games, scored in the 43rd minute after a brace from Hirving Lozano and a strike from Matteo Politano to put Napoli into a four-goal lead before the break.

Sam Lammers came off the bench to grab a consolatory goal for Atalanta in the 69th minute.

After scoring the goal, Osimhen held up a shirt with the inscription “#End Police Brutality in Nigeria” to celebrate his goal.
