ENDSARS MEMORIAL PROTEST: OUR ROLE

ENDSARS MEMORIAL PROTEST: OUR ROLE

To find protesters being brutalized, shot at, and arrested for exercising their fundamental right is one that begs the question- Have peaceful protesters now become criminals? No, they haven’t!

One year after the nationwide October 2020 #EndSARS Protest, the movement against years of police brutality remains undeterred as processions were held in different parts of the country to clamor for a better-policing force in Nigeria.

Gavel, through her network of legal associates, observed, monitored, and provided prompt legal support for Protesters illegally arrested during the EndSARS Memorial Protest where our Legal team in conjunction with other Civil society organizations secured the release of 32 detainees in Lagos State and 3 detainees in Kwara State arrested in connection with Endsars Memorial Protest.
