#EndSARS protests going ahead despite Police warning as Activists list events

Activists have outlined activities listed for the planned #EndSARS memorial protests coming up later this month.

Some flyers shared on social media show that the events will begin with a Jumat Service on October 15 at Jumaat Suadr Central Mosque, Ojota, Lagos.

This will be followed by traditional rites on October 16 at the New Afrika Shrine in Agidingbi, Lagos.

On October 17, a Church Service will be held at Logos Christian Centre in Oregun, Lagos.

Memorial protests will also hold in major cities like Ibadan, Port Harcourt and Abuja.

This is despite the Lagos State Police Command warning against any form of #EndSARS protest, saying the state cannot afford a repeat of the destruction brought about by hoodlums who hijacked the protests of last year.

The Lekki tollgate was the epicentre of the #EndSARS protests of October 2020, which were against police brutality and bad governance.

The location had youths airing their grievances day and night until they were dispersed by soldiers of the Nigerian Army on October 20.

    The only problem I have with these protests is that they do not in any way make the government to change. Rather, the protests end up being hijacked thereby leaving a long trail of blood and material losses.
    At the very end, law enforcement agents are forced to leave the streets for their own safety and then the criminals will surface and hover over all of us like a Colossus.
