Nigerian citizens mostly the youths pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the now-infamous Lekki Tollgate shooting. #EndSARS
Nigerians have started their EndSARS protest memorial via posts and comments on most of the major social media platforms. Per our research, others will also be on the street as they all remind the authorities what happened a year ago #EndSARS.
One of the updates we have from Nigeria is that the Operatives of the Lagos State Police Command have already arrested two protesters at the Lekki tollgate where the #EndSARS Memorial Protest is scheduled to hold.
The first guy who was arrested by the Operatives of Lagos State Police claimed to be a journalist and the other was seen carrying a placard.
