#EndSARSMemorial: Youths and Celebrities Defy Heavy Security Presence to Mark the End SARS Memorial

Nigerian youths and celebrities defied the heavy presence of security personnel to hold a memorial car procession to mark the one year anniversary of the #EndSARS protesters who lost their lives at the Lekki tollgate in Lagos on Wednesday.

On 20 October, 2020, soldiers opened fire on #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki Tollgate, with unconfirmed number of people reported dead.

Today is the first year of the incident and several people including celebrities showed up for the memorial.

Although some arrests have been made by the police at the scene, the youths were not deterred as they held hands and marched with their fists raised up.

Others remained in their vehicles waving Nigerian flags, blaring car horns, and chanting songs of solidarity.
