#EndSARS: Protesters Hold Candlelight Vigil In Lagos
#EndSARS protesters gathered in their numbers campaigning against police brutality and extrajudicial killings in Nigerian as they held a light vigil to mourn the departed souls.
Following a protest which has lasted for a week and three days, the protesters gathered around various areas of the Lagos metropolis to mourn the death of friends, loved ones, and family members who met their cruel end at the hands of SARS officials.
At the different locations where the candlelight event is holding, prayers were said after which the demonstrators sang the National Anthem in respect of the country.
Lagos is not the only place where the candlelight ceremony is taking place, a similar event is taking place at the nation’s capital, Abuja, and in Port Harcourt.
Those who could not join the event physically have taken to social media in solidarity with the protesters on the ground.
In series of videos posted on Twitter, concerned Nigerians made of Christians and Muslims were spotted holding lit candles as they pray for all lost souls who fell victim to police brutality in the country.
