It is a black Tuesday in Nigeria as it’s been reported that the peaceful protesters are being shot by the nation’s army.


The protest kicked off with the hashtag “End Sars”; which is a call to end Police brutality and the hideous deeds of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

After over 10 days of peaceful protest at different states in the country, it was said that some hoodlums tried penetrating through the peaceful protesters.

On the 20th of October 2020, the government of Lagos State announced a curfew which is to last for 24 hours.

“I, therefore, declare a 24-hour curfew in the state starting from 4 pm today, nobody except emergency responders and essential service providers should be found on the streets.’’

However, Nigeria bled after it was said that the CCTV and light around the protesters were taken out, and the Nigerian army reportedly shot at the peaceful protesters.
