The memorial rally was organised to mark the second anniversary of the #EndSARS movement.

Police officers stationed at the Lekki tollgate on Thursday, October 20 fired teargas and water cannon to disperse participants of the second #EndSARS memorial.


It was earlier reported that Nigerian youths converged in their numbers at the Lekki Tollgate this morning to mark the second anniversary of the shootings of peaceful #Endsars protesters on October 20, 2020.

Nigerians who joined the procession were seen carrying dummy coffins to honour the memory of those who lost their lives to the EndSARS protest in 2020.


However, Nigerian rapper and activist, Falz who also joined the memorial procession this morning revealed that security personnel fired teargas to disperse the crowd.

He shared a video of people scampering for safety and wrote, “Their usual show of madness, they tear-gassed, but we are safe, thanks to everyone checking in.”
