Arsenal, on Saturday, tweeted that the club felt the “pain” and saw the “footage” of the videos about the incident shared on social media.
The club wrote, TO OUR NIGERIAN FANS. WE SEE YOU. WE HEAR YOU. WE FEEL YOU.
“WE HAVE READ OUR REPLIES. WE HAVE SEEN THE FOOTAGE. WE CANNOT IMAGINE THE PAIN.
“OUR THOUGHTS ARE WITH EVERYONE IN NIGERIA.
“STAY STRONG. STAY SAFE.”
The tweet have been commended by many Nigerians on Twitter who observed that Nigerian authorities were still studying the situation even though it had drawn attention from abroad.
