A video has emerged where Tinubu was graced by #EndSARS protesters in Oshodi, Lagos.
OnyxNews Nigeria reports that the video which was emerged on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Monday, October 19, shows the moment the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party, Bola Tinubu, was disgraced by #EndSARS protesters in Oshodi area of Lagos.
This video is coming at a time Nigerian youths are agitating for the end of Police brutality and extra judicial killings of Nigerians.
The Nigerian youths have been on the streets for more than two weeks now, protesting the brutalities, humiliation, and extortion of Nigerians, especially the youths by SARS, a Police unit under the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department headed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Anthony Ogbizi.
During the protests, the protesters demanded an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), using a hashtag: #EndSARS.
The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Adamu dissolved SARS on Sunday, October 11, 2020, following a widespread protest from Nigerians worldwide but despite this, the protesters have refused to leave the streets.
However, #EndSARS protesters protesting in Oshodi area of Lagos on Monday, October 19, were heard chanting “ Tinubu Ole ” in Yoruba which translates to “ Tinubu thief ”, a situation which can best be described as an embarrassment to Tinubu, a two-time former governor of Lagos State, Nigeria’s commercial city.
