 Some Nigerian youths held the second memorial of the #EndSARS protest in the Lekki area of Lagos State today. Popular comedian Debo Adebayo, also known as Mr Macaroni; and musician Folarin Falana, better known as Falz are some of the leaders of the procession to commemorate the second-year anniversary of the #EndSARS protest that rocked Lagos and parts of Nigeria in October 2020.

Mr Macaroni, who is present at the procession, had on Wednesday announced the “peaceful walk” in honour of victims of police brutality and extrajudicial killings.

Also, Falz, son of renowned human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, said the demonstrators will walk and drive through the toll gate honking and waving the Nigerian flag.

Meanwhile, officers of the Lagos State Police Command have stormed the Lekki Toll Gate. The fully armed police officers were seen in their scores with about 25 patrol vans.

According to Lagos Police spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, citizens are free to assemble but not to block any road in the state.
