Mr Macaroni Urges Swift Release Of 2020 #EndSARS Protesters

Mr Macaroni and Nigerians commemorate #EndSARS at Lekki Tollgate, marking 3rd anniversary of the 2020 protests.

Heavy police presence at Lekki, including Commissioner Owohunwa and senior officers.

Yesterday, the Lagos State Police Command warned against gatherings at the Lekki tollgate area, expressing their zero-tolerance stance.

#EndSARS arose in response to police brutality, including extrajudicial killings, extortion, and abuse of power, primarily by the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) officers.

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

Amidst the turmoil, violence erupted as hoodlums seized the opportunity to incinerate police stations and public facilities, launching assaults on officers and citizens alike.

On October 20, Nigerian Army officers abruptly ended the protest by firing at the demonstrators, causing casualties among the mostly young protesters.

Mr Macaroni urges Nigerian police to release 2020 protesters in custody during peaceful walk.

“We are here to honour the dead, to honour the lives of those that were lost on October 20, 2020. I want to use this opportunity to demand the unconditional release of all those who are still unjustly imprisoned. 2020 protesters still in prison despite daily legal efforts.. We are using this opportunity to call those concerned once again for the unconditional release of the protesters,” said the actor.
Mr Macaroni emphasizes protests for immediate improvements in Nigeria.

He said, “Some of us are still here because we love this country so much and we don’t want this country to burn. We want things to be better in own generation. That is why we always do this so that people never forget. We all deserve better.

The actor has been extra active since 2020 in terms of his activism. Alongside Falz and Aisha Yesufu, Mr. Macaroni was a key figure in the #ENDS protests, fighting against police brutality in Nigeria. During the first memorial gathering in 2021, authorities arrested and brutalized him, much like many other Nigerians.
