It was the Singer Falz and comic actor Mr. Macaroni who led the car procession to mark the first anniversary of the #EndSARS protest in Lekki area of Lagos. While those entertainers ‘led from the front’, some notable Nollywood celebrities took to their social media timeliness to lend their support to anniversary, all of them demanding an end to brutality and indiscriminate killing and harassment of Nigerians by men of the Police Force. Here is a peep into the timeliness of some notable screen celebrities.

WE will never forget. One year ago, young Nigerians protested peacefully across the country to speak up against police brutality. Instead, they were shot at—some killed, some injured, others on the run, all of us traumatized. One year later, nothing has changed. Still no value for the Nigerian life, no questions answered and no police reforms… Nigeria, morning will come. It might be slow, but it will come. Until then, we will not stay silent. We will do our best to stay alive so that indeed we can see the good come out of Nigeria.

Adesua Etomi
I can never forget this day. I was six months pregnant, crying my eyes out, hearing gunshots from our house. Sitting in the darkness out of fear. I can’t possibly imagine how terrifying it must have been for those at the tool gate. I can never forget. For the lives lost throughout the protest, I will never forget.

Kate Henshaw
NO matter how many times a lie is told, it will never trump the truth. For the lives that were lost at the Lekki Toll Gate and across our nation Nigeria. For the millions of voices raised crying for true change. For justice, peace and equity. We remember you our heroes who were cut down in your prime, though all you raised was the Nigerian flag. For an end to all forms of brutality, we remember you and we will never forget.

Yul Edochie
WE must never forget 20/10/2020. The deaths of our heroes must not be in vain. We must remain committed to building a new Nigeria that works for all.

Segun Arinze
STILL leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. The scars remain. A reminder that we will never forget 20/10/20. Many questions left unanswered

RMD
QUESTIONS still linger. Answers too far-fetched. Time can’t heal these wounds. Twentieth of October twenty twenty. We remember still. Will time every heal these wounds?

Rita Dominic
A year later and we still don’t have answers. We will never forget. #endsarsmemorial

THIS is what this country feels like. On the left, they are picking randomly and aiming at you. On the right, they are brainwashing you and stealing from you. In the centre of it all, you are just their breeder with almost no value. End police brutality. End corruption. End slavery. End intimidation. 20/10/20. Never forget.

Ramsey Noah
TO all the souls we lost towards a better Nigeria, you will remain forever in our hearts. We will never forget. The struggle for a better Nigeria continues. 20/10/2020
