Protesters shout slogans as they hold a banner with the inscription ‘End SARS now’ during a protest against the Nigeria rogue police, otherwise know as Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), in Ikeja district of Lagos, Nigeria, 09 October 2020. In recent times, large section of the Nigerian population, including unemployed youth, has been calling for the dissolution of the police Special Anti-Robbery Squad as they accusing them for notorious killings, harassments, and maiming of innocent citizens in the bid to quash internet scammers.
Protest Against SARS Police in Lagos, Nigeria – 09 Oct 2020

What started as a peaceful protest has suddenly turned an abattoir; where innocent, bright civilians are murdered in cold blood. It’s pathetic and is one of the most horrific event ever in Nigerian history. Being emotionally exhausted and by all means not finding the right appeal from the supposed elected officials is most depressing. It’s practically insensitive to have the President say nothing about these happenings under his watch. What kind of man will feel so comfortable and not react? Have you no idea your country is on fire?

This was only spearheaded to advocate for and lead to change. What we did wrong was only them trying to fight for our lives, their rights and wanting to effect real change on the government of the day. Can’t we fight for change anymore? This is beyond me as I weep for my country.

 

How cruel to see our government officials instruct military personnel to gun people down without any iota of grief and conscience. These are humans, not animals. Just last night, a 10 minute recorded memorandum was said by His Excellency because honestly, that was not a speech as supposed. I’m amazed, disappointed and broken that even the so-called President in question didn’t dim it for to address the issue of the Lekki Toll Gate massacre that happened in the late hours of Tuesday. Our nation is in serious crises and all he could say was telling the international communities to avoid making a hasty judgement? Are those pieces of evidence on several social media pages not enough to prove to the world that we are being led by seemingly greedy, carefree and unrepentant old folks?

Multiple accounts of footage were seen, bringing to lime-light hidden palliatives meant to be evenly distributed to Nigerians during the pandemic. But, No! What comes after are thoughtless reporters claiming they are hoodlums from unknown locations breaking down doors and looting items. In all sincerity, these are items meant for them and yet they’ve been denied these resources for so long.

 

Our people are suffering in the midst of plenty and a traditional ruler would dare bury such huge amounts in a coffin? Where were the so-called media houses when official vehicles were seen conveying political thugs to protest scenes, only to have them spill the blood of these innocent young souls hours later, and leaving mothers heartbroken, expecting a child that would never return home?

Where were those we elected into offices meant to lead us when these fallen heroes were brutally murdered? These were young smart brains meant to change the cause of the nation. Heroes determined to fight for true freedom, and yet, in the face of such cruel death, they stood chanting the National Anthem and were still being shot in the process. There is no greater form of wickedness as these. My heart bleeds.

What country allows the free movement of murderers claiming themselves as security forces, without being challenged? This is a country that would allow for free passage of political frontiers at night, only to be told they’ve been transported outside the country. Hiding from their shame and leaving the masses in pain.

Now, all they are holding on to are the events that have taken over. Marketplaces set on fire, terminals and media houses burnt down amongst others. These were your making. If you had paid attention to our yearnings earlier, settled our regards which is weightier than you all sitting at the comfort of your homes and pretending all is well, none of these wouldn’t have happened; they’d have been avoided.

You all saw all that happened, very much aware and yet, you all come out freely days after the incidence, claiming sympathy and sending your condolences to the bereaved. Is it some form of a pity party? This is an appeal you should have considered earlier before the whole idea turned out messy. Such effrontery and guts tantamount to nothing, but salting a fresh bruise.

At this juncture, you all have failed us. I wonder what legacy the generations coming will hold on to, and really do hope the Federal Government sit and make rightful amends. Because, we have seen that the government is up to no good, no plans for the future of this country. We youths are the future, and if sending us to our early graves is your agenda, you have missed it.

Henceforth, we’ve chosen to fight for good governance, and while the overall impacts of the current national protests are still unfolding, they will absolutely be influential, written on the pages of millions of souls here and in the diaspora. An event that would change entirely the identity of Nigeria. A walk into the fight for truth, justice and equity.
