The #EndSars protest was exactly a year today. Nigerians remember and moans as they took to social media to express their grievances over the sad event.
Nigerian youths, who had had enough resistance to police brutality reached a climax and were ready to fight for liberty. They took to the streets to demonstrate peacefully against the brutality, mindless killings and extortion by uniformed officials who are supposed to protect them.
They have taken to the streets and Lekki Tollgate to mark the first #EndSars anniversary at the tollgate last year, October 20. One of the public figures who participated actively at the memorial is a Nigerian music star, Falz.
The long convoy of cars is blaring horns, waving flags and “dropping roses for our fallen heroes”, as one of the participants put it.
“Stay in the car, drop your flag and roses”
Said Falz who was streaming the event live on his Instagram handle, “We seek justice for those that laid down their lives for us. “They haven’t got justice.”
Meanwhile, police have arrested some protesters that were on foot and speaking to the press.
