In this article, I will be showing you some of the remarkable events that happened at the Lekki Tollgate during the Endsars Memorial Protest.

1. During yesterday's EndSars car procession protest, a lot of youths turned up to honour those who were killed during last year's protest, and they all protected peacefully by staying inside their cars, waved their flags and blast their horns.

After the protest, all those who came out went back home without causing any riot and two of the Nigerian celebrities, Falz and Mr Macaroni came out to support the people.

The memorial protest was a successful one, no record of death, injury and everything went as planned at the Lekki Tollgate.
