#EndSARS: Innocent souls were killed and a year later no one has been punished – Falz

Nigerian musician and activist, Folarin Falana popularly known as Falz has remembered protesters who were killed during the Lekki shooting incident last year.

Taking to his Instagram page ahead of the anniversary of the October 20, 2020 #EndSARS protest in Lagos where gunshots were fired at protesters at the Lekki tollgate, Falz noted that Nigerian youths will not be silenced by anyone.

The rapper also reacted to the decision of the Lagos state Police barring interested persons from staging any EndSARS remembrance protest.

Falz said innocent people were killed and it’s been over a year since the unfortunate incident yet no one has been punished for the crime.

He wrote;

”20:10:20 [update]

They killed innocent souls that were simply asking not to be killed or brutalized.

A year later, no one has been punished yet for those heinous crimes.

A supposed Police Commissioner “warned” against citizens exercising their fundamental human rights. Yes a Police Commissioner.

A couple of well meaning citizens decided to put together a summit to reflect on last year’s events & honour the lost souls. Event centre pulls out (“instructions from above”)

As I type this, there is already HEAVY police presence at the Lekki toll gate.

Best thing they could come up with is organizing “concerts” to try and distract us from remembering the real heroes in all of this. The people they murdered.

What we will never do, however, is be quiet.

We will NEVER EVER EVER EVER be silenced.

Not today, not on the 20th, not ever.”
