Nigeria rapper Folarin Falana popularly known as Falz on Tuesday urged Nigerians to attend a protest to mark the one-year anniversary of the #EndSARS massacre.
In a social media post, Falz shared a digital flier with #ENDSARS MEMORIAL CAR PROCESSION written on it, calling people to remember those murdered by security agencies during the October 20, 2020 #EndSARS protest.
He asked participants to come out with their cars and gather for the protest that will be held on Wednesday morning around 8:00 am-10:00 am at the Lekki toll gate plaza.
“It is impossible for us not to memorialize our fallen heroes. We will never ever forget.
“Innocent Nigerian citizens waved flags and sang till they were shot at, injured and killed. We must never forget.
“We’re rolling up in cars tomorrow to drive through the tollgate. We know their way, so a procession of cars is the safest option to minimize police harassment. We will stay in our vehicles throughout. We have rides for people that need.
“Each and every one’s safety is very important so please let’s move together.
EndSARS. EndSarsMemorial #October2020 #WeWillNotForget.”
The call for the public to rally on Wednesday to mark the #EndSARS memorial has been circulating on social media.
Last year in October, Nigeria youths gathered to protest against police brutality across the country.
During the Lagos protest, the Nigeria Army cracked down on the peaceful protesters at the Lekki toll gate, murdering some and driving off with their bodies, according to several witnesses.
