Tiwa Savage, the Nigerian singer, has reignited the debate on “who ordered the shooting of protesters at the Lekki tollgate last year” in a short song to commemorate the first #EndSARS anniversary.
On the night of October 2020, operatives of the Nigerian army had opened fire on unarmed protesters at the protest ground in Lekki.
The incident has remained a topic of heated controversy since then while there have been conflicting reports on the casualties after the shooting which continues to attract global attention.
Nigerians have also continued to demand the identity of those who directed the soldiers to shoot at the protesters.
At the time, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, had blamed it on “forces beyond his direct control”.
The army had denied being responsible while the federal government said it would investigate the tragic incident.
But DJ Switch, the entertainer who filmed the shooting on the night, had tackled Sanwo-Olu, asking him to tell the “truth about the incident.”
A year after the incident, Nigerians took to the streets to honour those who reportedly lost their lives during the shooting.
In a short song to mark the #EndSARSMemorial, Tiwa Savage called on authorities to reveal who ordered the shooting of protesters.
“Don’t end our lives… We will not forget, this is not the end. Who gave the order, who gave the order? We’ll not forget…,” she can be heard singing.
She also accompanied the video with a terse post which read: “Who? 20.10.20”
The ‘Koroba’ singer has been in the news since a video clip of her intimate moment with her new lover surfaced online.
