#ENDSARS: 10 things we now have to do to bring the cold-blooded murderers of Lekki to justice

  1. We have to write to all human rights bodies internationally, asking that they agree to back a move to get those responsible for this massacre brought before the International Criminal Court. If those who committed such crimes in Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Liberia were brought to justice, so too should similar murderers in Nigeria
  2. We should ask the international community to place a blanket visa ban on all Nigerian politicians, government officials and security commanders for the time being. This should be in place until we ascertain those who are criminally responsible
  3. We should forward all videos, photos, messages, etc we have to the ICC. All this will constitute evidence when the criminals are eventually charged
  4. Our #endsars movement should continue indefinitely until arrests are made and those responsible are charged
  5. Internationally, we should have demonstrations outside every Nigerian mission next Saturday, October 24. We should try as much to synchronise them to occur at the same time
  6. Diasporans should picket the homes of anyone who flees Nigeria as a result of being inducted
  7. As a first step, we should be demanding the immediate sacking of the service chiefs and the inspector general of police
  8. We should ascertain if internal cameras were recording what went on at the Lekki Toll Gate. As we all know, they removed the external cameras but if the internal ones were still working, we want the contents made public to reveal the identities of those behind this
  9. All diasporans should sign petitions on their countries of abode. In the UK for instance, if up to 100,000 sign a petition, the government is compelled by law to debate the matter in the House of Commons
  10. We should step up pressure on all those we know who are serving in government or members of the ruling APC to resign if they are genuinely opposed to this murder. The idea is to make the hardcore murderers as isolated as possible
