Although the Lagos state police had issued an initial warning that no form of protests should be held at the Lekki tollgate today 20th of October 2021, with a heavy deployment of armed men and armored tanks was seen at the tollgate to back it.
However, influencers like Falz, Chike, Mr. Macaroni, Taaoma and a list of others still paid their respects to the #ENDSARS victims as they stormed the tollgate in cars, blasting horns in memory of the fallen heroes.
The # ENDSARS movement is about more than just protesting police brutality; it is also about combating corruption, injustice, and other vices that are dragging the country backward. As youths, only unity, steadfastness, and fearlessness will remove the chains that the oppressors put in place. So the fire of hope and clamour for genuine change must continue to burn.
