A year ago today, innocent citizens who demanded the right to live peacefully, to not be harassed and profiled unjustly, were shot at by the ones who took an oath to protect them.
The events of October 20, 2020, at the Lekki Toll Gate are still very fresh in our hearts and the conscience of all freedom-loving citizens.
We urge the relevant authorities to ensure that those injured, killed, or missing receive the justice that they deserve. Especially to give comfort to the many victims and their loved ones who continue to suffer from this dark chapter in our nation’s history.
We join calls on the Nigerian government to fulfill its commitment to uphold the rights and freedom guaranteed to all citizens under the country’s constitution and to end the systematic persecution of young Nigerians.
At GLG, we pledge to use our platform to shine the light on these societal ills, and support organisations that are working to bring lasting positive change to our nation.
God bless the federal republic of Nigeria and Nigerians.
In memoriam: the victims of October 20, 2020.
