Rapper Falz has reacted to the recent verdict of the Lagos Panel on the Lekki Massacre.
Nigerian prolific rapper, singer, songwriter, and activist, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz, has reacted to the recent verdict of the Lagos Panel on the Lekki Massacre.
Remember that on October 20th, 2020, the Nigerian military was dispatched to kill peaceful protesters during the # ENDSARS proteest, a peaceful protest by Nigerian youths against police brutality, corruption, and other societal ills.
In an update of events, the Lagos State #EndSARS Judicial Panel on Police Brutality and Other Related Abuses submitted its report to the state government yesterday, November 15, 2021.
According to the reports, which were based on cases of police brutality and the October 20 Lekki massacre investigation, it stated that at least nine people were confirmed dead at the Lekki toll plaza on October 20, 2020.
Falz, who alongside Runtown initiated the #ENDSARS movement, has reacted to the reports. According to the rapper, the government tried to twist the truth about that event, but that failed. He further urged the government to ensure that all recommendations by the panel are fully implemented. He wrote:
I can’t believe these monsters legit made us think that we were mad shaa
Something that we watched on Instagram live.
Anyway the panel report is out now and it is clear as day.
Just in case you thought we would back down at some point. That has never been & will never be an option.
ALL these recommendations must be implemented fully!!
The least that these innocent souls deserve is JUSTICE!
