EndSARS: No peace without justice, Eedris Abdulkareem tells Sanwo-Olu

Popular Nigerian singer, Eedris Abdulkareem has slammed Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu over the invitation for a peace walk in Lagos State.

Recall that the governor on Tuesday, speaking about the Lekki shootings of October 20, 2020, said that he would be leading a ‘Walk for Peace’ in December to herald the “healing of our land”.

“Let me use this occasion to extend an open invitation to our youths, members of the diplomatic corps, civil society groups, students, and the media as well as other stakeholders to join me,” he said.

The governor invited the likes of Falana, Adebayo, Dele Farotimi, Temitope Majekodunmi, Segun Awosanya (Segalink), Adedotun (Just Detoun), Seun Kuti; Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu; and Commander of Rapid Response Squad CSP Yinka Egbeyemi and others to join him in the “historic march for our dear Lagos.”

Meanwhile, Falz, and Mr Macaroni have since declined the invitation and demanded justice for those allegedly killed during the EndSARS protest before peace can be restored.

Also, Eedris took to his Instagram page and described the invitation for the walk of peace as being dead on arrival.

According to him, no amount of walking can get Nigeria to the destination of peace without the route of justice.

His post read, “Dead On Arrival; No amount of walking can get us to the destination of peace without taking the honourable route of justice.

“Sanwo-Olu your walk of peace is dead on arrival.”
