Popular comedian and activist, Adebowale Adedayo, better known as Mr Macaroni, has called for the release of #EndSARS protesters who are still languishing in detention three years after the mass protests.
Mr Macaroni spoke in Lagos on Friday while leading a peace walk to commemorate the third anniversary of the Lekki shooting, the tragic event that led to the end of the #EndSARS protests.
He said ,”The peace walk is to honour all those that lost their lives on October 20, 2020. We’ve done that. We want to walk back but the police don’t want us to walk back.
“We don’t want to give them a reason or an excuse to fire at us. We’ve been on this for three years now and we know what they are capable of doing.
“I want to use this opportunity to call for the unconditional release of all those [protesters] that are still in prisons. There are still some protesters who have been in prison since 2020. Lawyers have been on the cases, different shouts everyday but till now they are still there.
“We are using this walk to once again call on all those concerned to grant the unconditional release of all protesters that are still in prison.”
