Mr. Macaroni [/b]is gearing up for a peaceful walk, dedicated to those allegedly killed during the 2020 #EndSars protests at the Lekki Toll Gate.
Mr. Macaroni, a renowned Nigerian skit creator, recently used his social media platform to announce an upcoming peaceful walk that will commemorate individuals purportedly lost during the 2020 #EndSars protests at the Lekki Toll Gate.
Previously, Gistreel reported on the 2020 EndSars protests [/b]that swept across various regions of the country.
In Lagos, Nigeria, during the 2020 #EndSars demonstrations, a substantial gathering of people convened at the Lekki Toll Gate, obstructing the passage of both pedestrians and motorists for an extended period.
This act was met with disapproval from the authorities.
Reportedly, security personnel were dispatched to the Lekki Toll Gate on that fateful day. Subsequently, there were allegations of gunfire targeting peaceful protesters, leading to tragic loss of life.
While the government has not officially confirmed these allegations, protesters and many members of the public insist that lives were taken on that day.
Since then, every October 20th, beginning from 2020, has served as a day to remember those who are believed to have lost their lives during the Lekki Toll Gate #EndSars protests on October 20, 2020.
In memory of these alleged victims, Mr. Macaroni, the skit creator, has declared a peaceful walk to honor those purportedly harmed by security forces.
He stated, “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!”
Following his announcement, concerned individuals voiced their thoughts on the planned peaceful walk in the comments section.
Here are some of the reactions:
@TimothyOjuola: “Today marks 3 years since the Nigerian government took the lives of its own citizens participating in a peaceful and well-organized protest. We will never forget. Rest in peace to the departed souls.”

@chyvicalldway: “The painful thing is that the individuals responsible for this are still in power. May their souls rest in peace. Justice will certainly be served.”
@elonmusk_Dr: “I stand with you in remembering the victims of #EndSars and all those who have lost their lives due to police brutality in Nigeria. Your walk is a powerful symbol of hope and resilience. We will never forget.”
