The #EndSARS Protesters in Lagos State have vowed not to back down until the Government addresses their demand to end Police brutality and intimidation carried out by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.
They disclosed this on Friday, October 9, 2020, during a protest held at the State House of Assembly in Alausa area of Ikeja, the State capital.
Addressing the young Protesters, one of the Conveners and popular comedian, Mr Debo Adebayo, said the youths were tired, adding that: “We are not backing down, we can never back down. Look at everybody here, now I cannot even count the number of people that are here, it is because we are tired. When we came here, we didn’t have five per cent of this number the last time we came here for a protest. This is to say that the youths are waking up. While you are waking up, don’t give them another opportunity to shoot us down. Don’t give them another excuse to shoot us down. Like I said earlier, we are not here for politics. We are here because we are tired. Enough is enough.”
Speaking further, he asked the Protesters to assemble again on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, in the same environment by 9am, adding that African time wouldn’t be allowed.
