Reflections and Forward

From real-life testimonials of victims to relentless advocacy, the #EndSARS Legacy lives on. But the question remains – where is the justice?

  • Justice Delayed? With each passing year, hopes of justice dim. But they don’t fade.

  • Moving Forward: Ensuring such tragedies are never repeated. Upholding the democratic right to peaceful protest.

As the world continues to watch, the onus is on Nigeria to find the truth, serve justice, and honor the memories of those lost. It’s not just a Nigerian concern – it’s a human one.

“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.” – Benjamin Franklin
