#LekkiMassacre: Mr Macaroni Leading a peaceful march On 3rd Anniversary

The protest, which started peacefully, led to the disbandment of SARS by the Nigerian government.


However, the protest was stopped on October 20 when officers of the Nigerian Army shot at the protesters, killing and injuring many.

The Demand

Speaking in Lagos while leading a peace walk to commemorate the third anniversary of the Lekki shooting on Friday, Macaroni said the peace walk was aimed at honouring those whose lives were lost in the tragic incident.


The actor called on those concerned to grant unconditional release to all #EndSARS protesters still imprisoned.

“The peace walk is to honour all those that lost their lives on October 20, 2020. We’ve done that. We want to walk back but the police don’t want us to walk back.


“We don’t want to give them a reason or an excuse to fire at us. We’ve been on this for three years now and we know what they are capable of doing.

The Case

“I want to use this opportunity to call for the unconditional release of all those [protesters] that are still in prisons.

“There are still some protesters who have been in prison since 2020. Lawyers have been on the cases, different shouts every day but till now, they are still there.

“We are using this walk to once again call on all those concerned to grant the unconditional release of all protesters that are still in prison.”
