Speaking on the memorial ground, the content creator and movie actor stated that he is not prepared to disappoint those who lost their lives during the End SARS protest in 2020. Instead, he is willing to seek justice for every individual who lost their life on that fateful night.

Additionally, Macaroni mentioned that the Nigerian government should do better by providing adequate security and basic amenities for the people.

Speaking at the memorial program, Macaroni had this to say;

We cannot forget and the fallen heroes must know that people are here demanding justice.

He continued;

The Lagos Gov set a panel that made some recommendations but these are yet to be met. We wonder whether they are on the side of the truth or not.

This place was also said to be named the Lekki Memorial Plaza; we are not fighting the Government but we deserve better.

He went further to state;

We should ask the Govt how long we continue to table our demands. Are you going to fulfil the promises this is a call to the state government and Federal Government to do well by the Nigerian youths?

The Nigerian youths have been consistent and not violent; it was the Govt who were violent but they won’t touch anyone because it is election season and they are deceitful. We are Nigerians first before becoming a police officer or a governor.

As for Falz, real name Folarin Falana he stated that the legacy of those who died on October 20, 2020, would not be erased, hence, the aim and objective of the memorial procession is to make sure the Lagos state and Nigerian government do the needful by adequately protecting the lives of the youths in the country.

He went on to admonish Nigerian youths to become more ‘politically aware’ and vote for the right presidential candidate in the coming general election.

Falz speaking at the End SARS memorial procession had this to say;

It is such a shabby attempt to erase the legacy of the victims and the Lagos State Government has barely implemented the recommendations of the panel.

This is why we are here because we can never allow them erase the legacy of the victims.

I think it is important that the Nigerian youths focus on the next elections for leaders who respect justice and human rights.

Those coffins are very symbolic and we don’t want to cause trouble and just remembering those who laid their lives for us.

Feyikemi “FK” Abudu Reminds Nigerian Youths Of Heinous October 20 Shooting At #EndSARSMemorial Procession

Nigerian social media influencer and co-founder of Feminist Coalition, Feyikemi “FK” Abudu took time to remind youths of how the traumatic incident has left a scar in the hearts of young individuals in the country.

She stated that the five-point demands requested by Nigerian youths is yet to achieved two years after the incident took place.

Speaking, Abudu had this to say,

I don’t think there is a time as important as this which is why the youth must vote. It is easier for people to walk around; we are not causing trouble but to remind people about the events.

People died; I was on the team calling ambulances and some are still getting treatments and this is not the first time the Government has denied the events.

This is to absolve responsibility and no justice has been meted over the victims. You cannot acknowledge it and not take responsibility which is why they denied.

There is no Police reform which is why the five-point demands by the protesters is yet to be achieved
