Recall, last year October, Nigerian youths protested against police brutality for several weeks. The protest took another dimension after tens of people were reportedly killed at Lekki toll gate, a report that was debunked by the Nigeria army and the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

To commemorate the death of innocent citizens that died at the toll gate and others who died during the protest, Nigerians went to the streets of Lagos, to protest, while demanding justice for the lost lives.
