Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen, celebrated his first Serie A goal in a Napoli shirt on Saturday by raising a shirt with a message calling for an end to police brutality in Nigeria, lending his voice to the ongoing #EndSARS protest in the country.
Osimhen scored his first official goal for Napoli with a superb finish against Atalanta in the 43rd minute in a Serie A fixture.
He then ran towards the touchline where the broadcast cameras were and raised a white shirt with the inscription: “End Police Brutality in Nigeria.”
The striker had tweeted in support of #EndSARS protesters in Nigeria.
He was substituted in the 83rd minute.
Napoli went on to win the game 4-1 at their San Paolo Stadium.
Napoli paid French club Lille a club record fee of a reported 80 million euros to bring Nigeria forward to southern Italy on a five-year deal.
