#EndSARS: Police teargas protesters at Lekki tollgate
As Nigerians matched to Lekki tollgate to commemorate the one year anniversary of the fallen in last years October 20th ‘massacre’ the police have teargassed some the End SARS protesters at the toll gate in Lagos State on Wednesday (today).
Protesters gathering for the EndSARS commemoration demonstration at Lekki Tollgate in Lagos State were dispersed by police officers.
The EndSARS protests in October 2020 were staged in opposition to the actions of the now-defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a section of the Nigeria Police Force accused of cruelty.
However, the peaceful demonstration was disturbed on Wednesday by police officers who sprayed tear gas at the youths.
The protesters scampered for safety as they chanted End SARS.
