From OCCUPY NIGERIA to #EndSARS PROTEST to YORUBA NATION RALLY and still counting...
Ojota is fast becoming a place identified or attached with protests. The rallying point of protesters has always been a well beautified garden named after popular lawyer Gani Fawehinmi who stood for the masses at all times.
Ojota is always picked for protest by protesters because of it's peculiar and strategic location to travellers in general and Lagosians in particular. It was the same axis where the wife of Late Bashorun MKO Abiola winner of the June 12, 1993 Presidential election, Kudirat Abiola was murdered.
Fawehimi was not a violent man...He fought against tyranny and stood for the oppressed. But when violence take over the spot or area named after him and blood drops on that land, the man who was awarded SENIOR ADVOCATE OF THE MASSES by the people he loved and served will be turning in his grave.
We hope these protests will bring about peace in our beloved country.
