The trend #ENDSARS that most likely led to the ban of twitter in Nigeria has started trending again.
This is coming just few hours after President Buhari lifted the ban which has been on for about seven months.
#ENDSARS trend came about as a protest against police brutality in nigeria. The protest reportedly led to the death of youths that protested at the lekki toll-gate on October 20, 2020.
The management of twitter took sides with the youths to fight police brutality and this led to the anger of the federal government against the micro-blogging site, thereby leading to its ban.

I have been inundated with calls to react to Tinubu’s Presidential declaration. Well, I dont react. I respond at a time and date of my choosing. And when I’m ready, I will talk on why a man involved in the #LekkiMassacreof peaceful #EndSARS protesters is not fit to be President!Advertisement
