Popular, renowned activist and convener of Unemployed People of Nigeria, Dr. Uzor Ngoladi has called on Nigerians to embark on a nationwide #EndSARS walk against poverty and oppression on the same day of Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s scheduled Peace Walk.
In a statement sent to media organizations, Ngoladi noted that no amount of propaganda which is the hallmark of APC administration can suffocate and erase the brutal killing of young protesters at the Lekki tollgate during the EndSARS protest on 20-10-2020 from the memory of Nigerians. He insisted that #EndSARS has become an irrepressible global phenomenon with the capacity to send Buhari and Sanwo-Olu to the International Criminal Court after their tenure of office to answer for their crimes against Nigerians.
Read the statement below:
“It is our right to protest the injustices meted out against young Nigerians by the leadership of this country. We will not allow Governor Sanwo-Olu to rubbish and make jest of the report of the panel he set up by himself to investigate issues surrounding EndSARS and police brutality in Lagos State.

The Panel has done a fantastic job in record time and established that protesters were actually shot live bullets by soldiers sent by the government and that some persons also lost their lives at the Lekki tollgate. Why are you releasing a White Paper to counter the report? Why are you organizing a Peace Walk in Lagos to dishonor and spit on the graves of our late comrades who lost their lives in the struggle where there is no equal rights and justice? Nobody, no matter how highly placed can bury the Lekki tollgate massacre under the carpet.
We will organize a peaceful protest nationwide on the same day of the Peace Walk to drive home our grievances and frustration against this insensitive APC government that has inflicted pain and poverty on Nigerians.
I call on both employed and unemployed Nigerians, Sowore’s RevolutionNow, civil society groups, political parties etc to come out in their numbers for a walk against poverty and oppression on Sanwo-Olu’s date for the proposed infamous Peace Walk.
I am also inviting Sanwo-Olu’s special guests, Seun Kuti, Falz Falana, Mr Macaroni, Segalinks etc to walk with aggrieved Nigerians on that same day. May the souls of all the departed EndSARS victims rest in perfect peace!”
