In a solemn commemoration of a tragic chapter in Nigeria’s recent history, Mr. Macaroni, a renowned Nigerian comedian, has taken the initiative to lead a peaceful walk at Lekki Toll Gate.
This event is dedicated to honoring the victims who were reportedly killed during the 2020 #EndSars protests.
The 2020 #EndSars demonstrations saw citizens across Nigeria coming together to voice their concerns about police brutality.
At the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos, a large crowd gathered, effectively bringing traffic to a halt for several hours.
The government’s response to this protest was controversial, and it eventually led to allegations of security personnel firing on nonviolent demonstrators.
Three years have passed since that tragic day, and the government has yet to publicly acknowledge these reports.
Nevertheless, protesters and many others continue to demand justice for the lives lost during the #EndSars protests at Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020.
Mr. Macaroni, through his social media platforms, called for the peaceful walk and stated,
“3 Years now!!! We will Never Forget!!! #EndSars! We will be walking peacefully to honor all those who lost their lives on 20/10/2020!!! We also walk for all those who have lost their lives as a result of police brutality in Nigeria!!! We walk in peace!!! We will never forget!”
This announcement has garnered widespread attention and support from concerned individuals who have expressed their thoughts on social media.
Many have praised Mr. Macaroni’s commitment to remembrance and justice, highlighting the need to remember and seek answers for the lives lost during those tumultuous days.
