Omoyele Sowore, a human rights activist, has challenged the Nigerian police to a rally to commemorate the end of SARS.
Remember that in October 2020, Nigerians took to the streets in protest against police brutality.
The protest, however, became violent as some thugs hijacked it, prompting military to intervene at the Lekki toll gate.
On the one-year anniversary of ENDSARS, some people are preparing a demonstration on October 20th.
The Lagos police command, however, warned against the demonstration in a statement posted by its spokeswoman, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu.
On his Twitter feed, Sowore stated that EndSARS commemoration protests will take place on October 20th, 2021.
Nobody has the right, according to the activist, to stifle Nigerians’ desire to condemn President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration’s alleged atrocities.
His tweet read: “To Police in Lagos and across Nigeria, there will be #EndSARS memorial protests and direct actions on October 20 2021.
“Nobody can suppress the will of Nigerians to repudiate the mass atrocities of the Buhari’s regime on that day and beyond.”
