The son of Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Leke Adeboye has joined in the on-going  #EndSARS protest against police brutality in Lagos state.

Leke, who led the Sunday Church Service at the protest ground in front of the Lagos State Government House, said the demonstration signalled the beginning of a new Nigeria.

“I want all of us to know that this nation has been handed over to us slowly but surely by this singular move that we are all here representing our families, friends and nation. This is the beginning of the new Nigeria,” he said.

Also, protesters occupied the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, with a canopy pitched in front of PUNCH Place, the corporate headquarters of Punch Nigeria Limited at Magboro, Ogun State.

They had loud speakers, a disc jockey and an ambulance stationed on the protest ground, as they sang and danced, The Punch reports

The protest caused gridlock both inward and outward Lagos for long hours.

In the Lekki area of Lagos, the youth arrested and handed over a co-protester, Yusuf Lawal, to the police for allegedly stealing the phone of another protester.
