#EndsarsMemorial: Police release teargas to disperse protesters

Today, October 20/10 marks the one year anniversary of the alleged killing of Endsars 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.

Police are trying to disperse the protesters by firing tear gas canisters into their midst which saw the protesters running helter-skelter but that did not deter them from singing their solidarity songs despite the strong resistance from the police.

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.

The car procession is causing gridlock on both lanes of the Lekki expressway and motorists living in the area are stuck in traffic.
