Mr. Macaroni has planned a peaceful stroll at Lekki Toll Gate in commemoration of those reportedly killed during the 2020 #EndSars protest.
Mr. Macaroni, a prominent Nigerian comedian, recently took to social media to alert his followers of an approaching peaceful walk in remembrance of those reportedly killed during the 2020 #EndSars protest at the Lekki Toll Gate.
Crockvibes had previously reported on the 2020 EndSars protests that took place across the country.
During the 2020 #EndSars demonstration in Lagos, Nigeria, a large crowd gathered at the Lekki Toll Gate, stopping the flow of pedestrians and vehicle users for several hours.
The authorities deemed this move to be unacceptable.
On that day, security personnel were allegedly ordered to the Lekki Toll Gate. Shortly afterwards, accusations surfaced that shots were fired at nonviolent protestors, resulting in fatalities.
While the government has yet to publicly acknowledge these reports, protesters and a large number of other people insist that people were shot and lives were lost on that day.
Since then, the 20th of October has been used to memorialize the victims who purportedly died during the Lekki Toll Gate #EndSars protests on October 20, 2020.
Mr. Macaroni, announced a peaceful walk in commemoration of victims who were reportedly killed by security officers.
He wrote, “3 Years now!!! We will Never Forget!!! #EndSars! We will be walking peacefully to honor all those who lost their lives on 20/10/2020!!! We also walk for all those who have lost their lives as a result of police brutality in Nigeria!!! We walk in peace!!! We will never forget!”
Following his announcement, concerned individuals expressed their opinions on the planned peaceful walk in the comments section.
