#EndsarsMemorial: Today marks One Year Anniversary

Today, October 20/10 marks the one year anniversary of the alleged killing of police brutality protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate and a memorial protest is ongoing at the spot in memory of the souls that were lost that very day exactly a year ago.

News came in that police already made two arrests this morning, a journalist and a protester which Amnesty International had called on the Lagos Police Command to desist from on its Twitter page.

Comedian, Debo Adebayo popularly known as Mr. Macaroni and Rapper and actor, Folarin Falana popularly known as Falz, joined the car procession at the Memorial site at Lekki Toll Gate. Other celebrities that turned up were seen waving Nigerian flags from inside their vehicles while singing solidarity songs.

This came after the state police command released a statement on Tuesday warning residents not to stage any street protest, only indoor and virtual events are allowed.
