Youth commemorate the second-year memorial of the EndSARS protest shooting

On Thursday morning, a large group of young people gathered at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos State to commemorate the second anniversary of the EndSARS protest shooting. They carried mock coffins and blood-stained Nigerian flags.

The Lekki Tollgate, the location of the murders that happened on Tuesday, October 20, 2020, was traversed by the march.

The drive-through procession was announced on Wednesday on the Instagram page of entertainer Folarin Falana, also known as Falz the Bahd man.

The procession will mimic the first anniversary, when people drove and walked through the tollgate to memorialize the victims, according to a flyer that Falz published.

At the Lekki Toll Gate, some police cars were, nevertheless, visible on the ground early on Thursday. 

Before the march that is scheduled to take place today to remember the alleged killing of residents at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday, October 20, 2020, security personnel were seen to have taken control of the toll gate.
