Social media users have launched a campaign against African leaders who have failed to condemn the killing of unarmed protestors in Nigeria by soldiers.

According to them, African leaders are quick to comment on matters in the Western countries but fail to reciprocate that same energy when it comes to matters that affect the African continent.

The African Union (AU) and the Economic Community of West African State (ECOWAS) are yet to make an official statement on the unrest in Nigeria as well as other parts of Africa including Congo.

The hashtag #Diplomacy and #ENDSARS have been trending on Twitter following the horrific footages of some protestors who have lost their lives whilst seeking an end to police brutality in Nigeria.
