On 20 October, between 6:45 pm and 9:00 pm, the Nigerian army and police reportedly killed at least 12 peaceful protesters and left several injured in Lekki and Alausa in the cosmopolitan city of Lagos. The security forces, without warning, opened fire on thousands of people who were peacefully calling for good governance and an end to police violence as part of the #EndSARS movement.

On that day alone, 38 people allegedly died across Nigeria.

Since 8 October, protesters have consistently been met with excessive use of force. They have been fired at with live ammunition, beaten, and arrested. Water cannons and tear gas have also been used to disperse crowds.

And that's just only in Nigeria. 

In 2019, 1,004 people were shot and killed by police according to the Washington Post, whereas the Mapping Police Violence project counted 1,098 killed. Since the 20th century, there have been many public, private, and community efforts to combat police corruption and brutality.

we need to stop this.
