Leke Adeboye, the son of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, joined other #EndSARS protesters in Lagos to protest against police brutality in the country.
Leke, who led the Sunday Church Service at the protest ground in front of the Lagos State Government House, said the demonstration signaled the beginning of a new Nigeria.
“I want all of us to know that this nation has been handed over to us slowly but surely by this singular move that we are all here representing our families, friends and nation. This is the beginning of the new Nigeria,” he said.
Also, protesters occupied the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, with a canopy pitched in front of PUNCH Place, the corporate headquarters of Punch Nigeria Limited at Magboro, Ogun State.
