While the youth trooped into the streets to protest against police brutality in Nigeria, people living with disability were not missing in action.
For two weeks that the #EndSARS protests rocked Lagos state where it began, they joined the agitation for a better country where the youth can live their dreams without fear or intimidation.
With their blazing placards, they marched with the crowd — fearless and unrelenting.
MANSUR IBRAHIM captures some moments with these special people who decided not to sit back, despite their conditions, while their contemporaries campaigned for a new Nigeria.
From Majid Lasisi, who hawks face masks and handkerchiefs in traffic, to Madam Kofo, who sells recharge cards at the Lagos state secretariat, they had a common message that inspired them to join the protest — even if some of them had not been directly affected by police brutality, their loved ones have been victims. Hence, the fight became a collective one.
