#EndSARS: Late Dele Giwa’s Daughter, Ayodele Reveals What Her Father Would Have Done At A Time Like This



Ayodele Dele-Giwa, the daughter late Dele Giwa, a Nigerian journalist, editor and founder of Newswatch magazine, has revealed how her slain father could have reacted to the ongoing #EndSARS protest in Nigeria if he were still alive.

Naija News recalls that Giwa was assassinated by a mail bomb explosion on October 19, 1986.

Yesterday, October 19 which marked the 34th anniversary of Dele’s demise, Ayodele who was only a year old when her father died said she was optimistic that her late father would have joined the ongoing End SARS campaign if he were alive.

According to her, he would “be so proud of what the ‘lazy’ Nigerian youths have been doing over the past 11 days”.

Ayodele stated this with a picture of her father on Monday in a post on her Twitter account, Naija News understands.

She wrote; “I was 1 when he died, so all I know are stories from family and pictures. But one thing I am sure of: he would be so proud of what the “lazy” Nigerian youth have been doing over the past 11 days. He would have been 73 this year, & he would have come out to protest with the youth.

“It’s what he fought for. 34 years later, we are still fighting. But it will be different this time. Things will change. Our eyes have opened WELLA. E go shock them.

“RIP Daddy (struggle to say it sometimes). Wish I knew you for myself.”
