Florence Otedola, a disc jockey better known as DJ Cuppy, has finally joined the #EndSARS protest.
The 27-year-old entertainer had earlier faced a heated backlash from Nigerians on social media for being absent at the protests against the special anti-robbery squad (SARS).
At the time, she defended her absence at the protests, explaining that she was in isolation after returning from a trip overseas.
Making good her promise, Cuppy announced that she joined other #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos on Friday.
The disc jockey, in a post on her social media pages on Sunday, said her decision to join the protest was not to please people but to participate in a course aimed at fostering a better society.
“On Friday I went to protest not to please people but because I need to tell my children that I was part of history,” she wrote on Twitter.

The campaign against police brutality has continued to garner momentum across the country with protesters demanding definite action against police brutality from the government.
Mohammed Adamu, inspector-general of police (IGP), has announced that the SARS unit has been banned.
