EndSARS Anniversary: Mr Macaroni Set For Peaceful Walk




Popular Nigerian Comedian and activist, Mr Macaroni has announced a peaceful walk to commemorate the third anniversary of the #EndSARS protest.

The 30-year-old made this known in an Instagram post on Thursday, where he disclosed that the peaceful walk will honor victims of the October 20 protest at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos.

Recall,  in October 2020, a public outcry for an end to police brutality, extrajudicial killings, extortion and abuse of power, especially by the officers of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) kicked off.

The protest, which started off peacefully, led to the disbandment of SARS by the federal government of Nigeria.

However, the protest was brought to a stop on October 20 when officers of the Nigerian Army shot at the protesters, killing and injuring many protesters.

Speaking on the anniversary, Mr Macaroni wrote: “3 Years now!!! We will Never Forget!!!#EndSars!!!!We will be walking peacefully to honor all those who lost their lives on 20/10/2020!!! We also walk for all those who have lost their lives as a result of police brutality in Nigeria!!! We walk in peace!!! We will never forget!”
