New Documentary On #EndSARS To Premiere August 28
On August 28, a new film inspired by the horrific events that resulted in the shooting of #EndSARS demonstrators at the Lekki toll plaza in Lagos on the night of October 20, 2020, will be released.
The new documentary, named “ENDSARS Documentary,” aims to rekindle debates about #EndSARS and the circumstances that led to the historic movement, according to the film’s makers.
The video tells the story of the Nigerian Police Force and its defunct vicious department, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), which have been accused of decades of brutality and human rights violations.
“The documentary is amplifying the conversation and revival of the debate about ENDSARS, and the surrounding factors that necessitated the movement which is still with us today, highlighting voices that inspire and drive positive democratic change in Nigeria.
“This is a fitting reminder of the power to make a change when we stand up for justice” a press release by the producers read in part.
According to the statement, the trailer to the documentary will be released on August 26 via all social media handles of global streaming platform Meroestream.
This would then be followed by the actual premiere on August 28, still on Meroestream.
The documentary was produced by award-winning journalist and film producer Seun Oloketuyi alongside an associate producer Rolake Adesina.
