Two Things To Note From The End Sars Memorial Movement That Happened On Wednesday (Photos)

A year ago, some peaceful protesters were shot at the Toll Gate in Lagos State by some military men. In remembrance of those lost souls, the Nigerian youth went out for another peaceful protest tagged #EndSarsMemorial which happened on Wednesday, 20th October 2021. Many videos and photos from the said peaceful people were shared on social media and I happen to notice two things from it.

However, in this article, I will be sharing with you two things to note from the End Sars memorial movement on Wednesday.

#1 They were no hoodlums.

Remember that in last year's peaceful protest, some people who were known to be 'hoodlums' hijacked the movement, therefore, causing chaos. They started destroying and looting people properties.

However, the memorial movement was peaceful and successful because they were no hoodlums trying to cause chaos again.

#2 A good number of respected celebrities in Nigeria showed support for the movement.

Just like last year's #EndSarsBrutality movement, some celebrities in Nigeria like Burnaboy, Davido, Flavour, Falz and many others supported the memorial movement by coming out to protest or by sharing the post on their verified social media handles.

This shows that they are with the youth and will do everything in their capacity to ensure that the cry of the youth is heard by the government.
