Sodiq Yusuf, Nigerian singer better known as CDQ, and Charly Boy have joined protesters at the Lekki tollgate to commemorate the #EndSARSMemorial.
In a video obtained by TheCable Lifestyle, CDQ is seen trying to prevent some protesters from engaging in confrontation with security operatives at the venue.
The video clip also showed the rankled protesters shouting solidarity songs as they appeared to be daring the heavily armed police operatives on ground.
Attempts by the ‘Owo’ crooner to control the rowdy crowd proved abortive as some protesters were also seen trying to take photos with him.

Photos also obtained by TheCable Lifestyle showed Charly Boy storming the protest venue flanked by several other demonstrators.
The demonstration, which is also holding in some states across the country, is to honour the Nigerians who lost their lives at the Lekki tollgate last year.
In October 2020, several youths had taken to the streets to protest against police brutality and demand the proscription of the now-disbanded special anti-robbery squad (SARS).
The protest, however, took a dramatic turn when soldiers opened fire on the protesters on the night of October 20.
Falz and Mr Macaroni had earlier led the car procession at the Lekki tollgate.
