The #EndSARS protest slated for Thursday, October 8, 2020, is currently being held from Lekki toll gate opposite Oriental Hotel to Onikan and Appeal Court through the Nigerian Law School, Lagos.

The protesting youths are seeking the dissolution of the SARS unit of the Nigeria Police Force as they chants #EndSARS,  while carrying placards with in different scriptions like: “Enough is Enough” and “We are all victims”.

Both Falz and Runtown, who vowed they won’t back down on the #EndSARS protest, counselled the protesters not to be violent as they engaged security operatives who attempted to disrupt the protest.

In an Instagram live chat on Thursday morning, Falz, son of human rights activist, Femi Falana, said on his way to the protest venue: “No backing down. We move. The police are already there, waiting for us but we are not here to cause trouble. It is a peaceful protest. Coming through.”

See below tweets containing pictures and videos from the protest:

KanyiDaily recalls that Runtown had insisted that the proposed #ENDSARS protest will hold today, after his colleague, Naira Marley, called off his protest on Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
