EndSARS Memorial Day: Peaceful protest in Akure as Police Boss reacts

Nigerian youths today trooped to streets of some state capital cities including Akure, Ondo state to hold peaceful procession to mark the first memorial anniversary of the EndSARS protest.

In Akure, SUNSHINETRUTH reports that Business and normal official activities in places like Oyemekun road, Oja Oba to Alagbaka area continue undisrupted even as security operatives provided protection for the youths who were marking the first anniversary of the Endsars protest.

The protesters matched from Old Garage in Akure and ended the #EndSARS Remembrance Day at the Ondo State Police Headquarters on Igbatoro road where the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Bolaji Salami addressed them and attributed the delay in the implementation of the panel report on the last year’s protest to paucity of funds on the part of the Ondo state government.

Mr Salami promised to deliver the demands of the Endsars protesters to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.

Some residents who spoke with our reporter on the EndSARS anniversary are of the opinion that nothing had really changed as the injustice that was the main reason for the protest still existed in the society.
