Africa Vision Card, a fintech solution company headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia has condemned the tragic deaths of George Floyd in the American State of Minnesota and three girls across Nigeria namely Lagos, Edo and Ibadan respectively.
George Floyd, a 46-year-old African-American man, died in Minneapolis, Minnesota, after white police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed and lying face down on the street.
His death has seen a series of protest across America and other countries around the world, calling for justice and an end to police brutality on blacks.
Back in Nigeria, three girls in less than 1 week, three young girls have lost their lives to rapists and a stray police bullet.
Below is the statement by Africa Vision Card as found on it’s official Facebook page:
“The past days and weeks have, once again, shone a spotlight on the tremendous injustices in our society. We stand in solidarity with our employees and communities who are voicing their anguish, anger, and deep frustration with systems that oppress and devalue Black lives.”
“We stand against police brutality in all forms. We stand against a criminal justice system that disproportionately targets Black Americans.”
“We condemn violence against women in Nigeria and the whole world. AVC is built on the belief that communities have the power to change the status quo. Change is hard-fought, and we are committed to this fight.”
