103 Protesters Killed And Hidden By Lagos State For 3 Years? Govt Approves N61m For Mass Burial Of 103 Endsars Victims!

In 2020, Nigeria was shaken by widespread protests known as the EndSARS movement, demanding an end to police brutality and systemic corruption. The protests gained international attention, but what followed left many questions unanswered. Recently, leaked documents have emerged, revealing that the Lagos State government allegedly approved a staggering sum of N61 million for the mass burial of 103 EndSARS victims. This revelation has raised eyebrows, as the government had previously denied any killings or fatalities during the protests. As families continue to seek answers about their missing loved ones, this newfound information has ignited a fresh wave of skepticism and distrust towards the authorities.

The Tragic Night of October 20, 2020: On the night of October 20, 2020, the world watched in horror as peaceful protesters, waving the Nigerian flag and singing the national anthem, were met with violence at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos. The Nigerian military reportedly opened fire on the unarmed protesters, resulting in a devastating loss of life. However, the government repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and dismissed the tragic incident as mere allegations, leaving families in anguish and demanding justice for their loved ones.

A Leaked Letter Reveals the Truth: Fast forward three years, a leaked letter posted by investigative journalist with the handle @PIDOMNIGERIA on twitter exposed the ill of a government that is supposed to protect the citizens but ended up cutting their life short.

The letter which was addressed to the Lagos State Ministry of Health has surfaced, raising serious questions about the government’s previous denials. Dated July 19th, the letter with reference number LA/PPA/NO ONJ/VOL22/213, allegedly signed by the Director-General of the Lagos State Public Procurement Agency, Mr. Onafowote Fatai Idowu, confirms the approval of N61 million for the mass burial of the EndSARS victims.

The Role of TOS Funerals Limited:

Shockingly, the Lagos government awarded the burial contract to TOS Funerals Limited, whose CEO is a very close business associate to the governor of Lagos State; Babajide Sanwolu. Thereby adding further controversy to the unfolding situation. As families continue to seek answers about their missing friends and relatives, the government’s apparent sudden willingness to organize a mass burial raises concerns about the truth behind the tragic events of that fateful night.

For the families of the victims, the leaked letter has reignited the hope for truth and justice. The Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS-Related Abuses and Other Matters had previously confirmed the deaths of several unidentified bodies, calling for compensation and the release of the victims’ bodies to their families. However, it remains unclear if these directives have been fulfilled.
