Uncontrollable tears flows on Friday night as the protesters protesting against the dissolved Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) with the hashtag #EndSARS held a candle night memorial for the victims of SARS/police killings at Lekki, Lagos Island, Abuja and other parts of the country.
In a sombre mood, the protesters mourned the victims – who they described as “fallen heroes.”
On Friday night, the hashtag #FallenHeroes was among the most trending hashtags on the bird app, Twitter.
Some of the names of the victims of SARS/police killings were called at the session.
They were Jimoh Isiaq, who was killed last Sunday by a stray bullet; during a #EndSARS protest in Ogbomoso, Oyo State.
Other victims honoured at the event were
Daniel Chibuike (aka Sleek),
Rinji Bala Uzziel
Protesters at the candlelight sessions – which featured instrumentals; also held placards bearing inscriptions such as ‘End SARS,’ chanting the same words.
