The police in Lagos, earlier today, October 20, 2022, arrested four persons at the Lekki Tollgate who had gathered to mark the anniversary of the EndSARS protest, that took place two years ago.
The protesters were also dispersed with teargas and water canons and teargas.
Many protesters, onlookers and journalists took to their heels as the teargas saturated the air.
The police started firing the tear gas when the protesters laid some coffins at the toll gate to round off their demonstration.
Those arrested were identified as Ifeanyi, Olamide Raheemi, Samuel Ishola and one unidentified person. They were detained in a police van.
Despite heavy police presence, some young Nigerians including Nigerian artistes Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana, Adebowale ‘ Mr Macaroni’ Adedayo and many others joined the solidarity march.
The walk was to mark the second memorial of the Lekki shooting that took place at the tollgate and to honour those that lost their lives to police and military brutality.
