    20-10-20!! Endsars Protest: One Year After-What Has Changed?

    Endsars

    EndSARS is a decentralised social movement in Nigeria that consists of a series of large protests against police brutality.

    The slogan demands that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a notorious Nigerian police squad with a lengthy history of abuses, be disbanded.

    Following a resurgence in October 2020, following additional reports of the unit’s abuses, huge rallies took place across Nigeria’s main cities, followed by a barrage of social media anger.

    To cut the long story short, armed members of the Nigerian Army arrived at the demonstration site on October 20, 2020, and opened fire on peaceful and unarmed demonstrators at the Lekki Toll Gate, resulting in a disputed number of deaths.

    A video of the incident, filmed by DJ Switch, a brave Nigerian youngster, went viral on the Internet, showing live rounds of bullets being fired at unarmed protestors who were knelt on the ground, hands clasped, singing the Nigerian National Anthem. At least 50 additional individuals were reportedly hurt, according to sources.

    Following the killings on October 20, video footage revealed that the Nigerian Army and Police continued to fire unarmed protesters.

    The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, first disputed reports of any deaths the day after the event, on October 21, but subsequently confirmed in a conversation with a CNN journalist that “just two individuals were murdered.”

    The question now is,
