A human rights activist and publisher of SaharaReporters, Omoyele Sowore, has replied the police saying there will be #EndSARS memorial protests on October 20.
This is despite a warning by the Lagos State Police Command against protests that might disrupt the peace currently being enjoyed in the state.
In a statement issued by the Command’s Spokesperson, Adekunle Ajisebutu, the police said they will use all legitimate means within their constitutional powers against such.
However, Sowore, in a post on his verified Twitter handle on Monday, disregarded the warning issued by the police.
According to him, “@PoliceNG in Lagos & across Nigeria, there will be #EndSARS memorial protests and direct actions on October 20, 2021.
“Nobody can suppress the will of Nigerians to repudiate the mass atrocities of the @mbuhari regime on that day and beyond.”
