But the young Nigerians, under the aegis of #EndSARS memorial vowed to disobey the police order.
The #EndSARS protests had goneworldwide in October 2020 to register the youths’ grievances against the alleged atrocities of the disbanded SARS of the Nigeria Police Force.
The protest, which gained massive international attention, came to a halt on October 20, 2020, when heavily armed soldiers allegedly shot protesters at the Lekki tollgate.
The Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry that probed the alleged killing of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki tollgate had approved the reopening of the tollgate after about four months of investigating the Lekki shootings.
The facility had been shut down since the probe of the shootings started.Click here to give us five stars rating!
