EndSARS: Those who said there was no massacre won’t accept report – Aisha Yesufu
Popular activist, Aisha Yesufu has chided those who denied that there was massacre at the popular Lekki toll gate.
The Lagos State Panel of Investigation in its recently published report about the Lekki Toll Gate incident revealed that police and officers of the Nigerian Army intentionally killed and maimed armless youths protesting the extrajudicial killings by the Nigerian police.
In the report, Major General Taiwo, who appeared before the Panel during the investigation told the panel that the soldiers acted on the order of Buratai, who in turns got instruction from the Commander-in-Chief, President Muhammadu Buhari.
The report has since generated reactions online from Nigerians and politicians.
Aisha, who was at the forefront of the EndSARS protest in October 2020 commended the Lagos panel for their objective report, describing the act as the highest level of activism.
The BBOG co-convener on her Twitter page wrote: “They said no one was killed and asked us to produce the bodies they took. You see all these people who denied there was massacre at Lekki Toll Gate, come 2025 when their principals are out of office, they will become advocates of good governance and democracy and hold government accountable. The ones who denied #ChibokGirls are today’s advocates.
“Activism is not just about being at protest grounds and making demands. Courage and bravery is not only facing guns and bullets on the streets.
You see what the Lagos panel did with this report? It is Activism of the highest order. It is bravely and courage personified.
“The people who denied that massacre happened on the 20th of October 2021 will not accept because of this report. Don’t hold your breath!
It’s been 7 years and those who denied #ChibokGirls were abducted, still do, in spite of all the reports.You know the truth that’s all that matters
