The United States government has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime for using the COVID-19 pandemic as a disguise to trample on its citizens’ rights, especially during the #EndSARS protests.

This was stated by the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken while announcing the 2020 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices on Tuesday.

Commenting on the 45th annual report of the U.S. Department of State, Mr Blinken noted that Nigerians and citizens of other countries defied the COVID-19 health risks, the threat of arrest, and other intimidation forms demand the respect of their fundamental human rights, regardless of the repercussions.
