Just weeks of suspending protests following the chaos and government promises, the EndSARS protest has resumed as dozens of elderly men and women took to the streets in Lagos.
The elderly protesters on Thursday carried placards demanding justice for victims of the Lekki toll gate shooting.
Recall that the EndSARS protests were carried out by Nigerian Youths home and aboard and they were seeking an end to police brutality and extrajudicial killings.
However, the peaceful protest was brought to an abrupt end following the shooting incident on October 20, 2020, when soldiers deployed to enforce curfew opened fire on unarmed protesters at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos state.
The incident led to the establishment of judicial panels of inquiries to be set up in states across Nigeria with the aim of probing allegations of rights violations by officers of the Nigeria Police, especially the now-disbanded SARS unit.
Media report on Thursday revealed that the Police filed a lawsuit seeking the court to dissolve all state #EndSARS panels.
Following this, elder Nigerian men and women stormed Tejuosho Market, in the Yaba area of Lagos state protesting for the youths, Correctng reports.
They held placards that read justice for tollgate massacre victims and chanting; “What do we want?.. Justice! When do we want it?.. NOW NOW!”
