FALZ - ENDSARS Anniversary

Popular Nigerian singer, songwriter and actor, Folarin Falana, better known as Falz, has said he is amazed why no one has been punished after a year of the ‘genocide’ that took place on Lekki Toll Gate.

Naija News understands that October 20, 2021, will mark a year that shots were fired at #EndSARS protesters in Lagos.

In a post on his Instagram page on Friday, Falz stated that citizens will never be quiet about the heinous act carried out by the security agencies.

The singer noted security personnel have been mounted at the Lekki toll gate ahead of the planned anniversary by the aggrieved youths.

Falz lamented the decision of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police barring interested persons from staging any EndSARS remembrance protest.

His post read: “They killed innocent souls that were simply asking not to be killed or brutalized. A year later, no one has been punished yet for those heinous crimes.

“A supposed Police Commissioner warned against citizens exercising their fundamental human rights. Yes, a Police Commissioner.

“A couple of well-meaning citizens decided to put together a summit to reflect on last year’s events & honour the lost souls. Event centre pulls out (“instructions from above”)

“As I type this, there is already a HEAVY police presence at the Lekki toll gate.

“The best thing they could come up with is organizing “concerts” to try and distract us from remembering the real heroes in all of this. The people they murdered.

“What we will never do, however, is be quiet. We will NEVER EVER EVER EVER be silenced. Not today, not on the 20th, not ever.”
