Officers of the Nigerian Police Force have shot teargas to disperse youths commemorating the memorial of the #EndSARS protest at Lekki tollgate.
The memorial rally was organised to mark the second anniversary of the #EndSARS movement.
Exactly two years ago (October 20, 2020) the entire country was plunged into mourning following shootings in the Lekki Tollgate allegedly carried out by the Nigerian Army to stop the youths protesting against police brutality.
Recall that Nigerian youths across the country had in October 2020, staged nationwide protest over extrajudicial killings by the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.
At about 6:50 p.m on October 20, 2020, officers of the Nigerian Army allegedly opened fire on unarmed protesters who converged at the Lekki Tollgate, leading to the death of several unsuspecting citizens.
