For participating in #EndSars protest, Nigerian man gets suspended from work, Nigerians react

Business owner grants employees one week off to protest EndSARS with 50% bonus on salary

For participating in the ongoing #EndSars protest, a Nigerian man identified as Samuel Adekojo has allegedly been suspended from his place of work in Lagos.

In the letter that is going viral on social media, Samuel was suspended for participating in the protest to end the brutal and extra-judicial killings by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

According to the company, non of their workers were allowed be in a crowded place, hence the reason they were instructed to stay in their various houses and work from home since coronavirus pandemic. Instead, Samuel decided to disobey the company by mingling with the protesters in Lagos.
