Jacob Desmond, a survivor of the Lekki Tollgate shooting on October 20, 2020, was reportedly arrested this morning during the #EndSARS memorial procession.
Jacob, a dispatch rider who joined other Nigerian youths who converged at the Lekki Tollgate on Thursday to mark the second anniversary of the incident, broke down in tears as he recounted how he was lucky to be alive as he was present when the shooting started two years ago.
A video serving the rounds showed Jacob on his knee as he recounted the October 20, 2020 incident.
As he spoke with journalists, two policemen arrived and asked him to follow them.
However, a Twitter user, who shared the video online said Jacob was arrested by the police officers.
“This is Jacob Desmond, a Dispatch rider who was just driving past the Lekki tollgate, when the memories of #LekkiMassacre struck. He stopped, remembered & cried, how he would have been amongst the dead, if not for God He was arrested by the police even while crying. #EndSARS”, he wrote.

Meanwhile, as Nigerians around the world mark the second anniversary of the EndSARS Lekki Tollgate shooting of October 20, 2020, popular Nollywood actor, Alex Ekubo has called on the government to rename the toll gate as “Lekki Memorial Way” in memory of those who lost their lives.
Alex took to his Instagram page to make this call and demanded that the Lekki Tollgate should be toll free, because Nigerians already paid the price in full with their blood during the tragic incident.
