Popular Nigerian skit maker and activist, Debo Adedayo aka Mr Macaroni has taken to Instagram to announce a peaceful walk to commemorate the third anniversary of the #EndSARS protest against police brutality in the country.

The 30-year-old disclosed that the peaceful walk will honour victims of the October 20 protest at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos.

Recall,  in October 2020, a public outcry for an end to police brutality, extrajudicial killings, extortion and abuse of power, especially by the officers of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) kicked off.

The protest, which started off peacefully, led to the disbandment of SARS by the federal government of Nigeria.

However, the protest was brought to a stop on October 20 when officers of the Nigerian Army shot at the protesters, killing and injuring many protesters.

Speaking on the anniversary, Mr Macaroni wrote: “3 Years now!!! We will Never Forget!!!#EndSars!!!!We will be walking peacefully to honor all those who lost their lives on 20/10/2020!!! We also walk for all those who have lost their lives as a result of police brutality in Nigeria!!! We walk in peace!!! We will never forget!”
