The new Burna Boy song on the Lekki shooting “20:10:20” has been well-received.
The track censured the military attack on End SARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate.
Famous for human rights abuses, the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), terrorized several Nigerians.
Many were summarily killed or wounded publicly or in degrading cells by the operatives of the notorious unit.
For more than ten days, demonstrators in Lagos – where the agitation started on October 8 – and like minds across the country called for an end to police brutality.
On the night of Tuesday, October 20, 2020, Army troops marched to the Lekki rally ground and opened fire on unarmed citizens bearing national flags.
The incident sparked global condemnation and calls for prosecution of those responsible.
Burna Boy told President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and the Nigerian Army that the dead will disturb them for all their “atrocity”.
The music star also mentioned an unnamed “godfather” and “gbo gbo ijoba”, a veiled reference to Federal Government and Lagos State authorities.
Burna Boy, real name Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, accused the government of turning graduates to beggars and killing them for demanding justice.
“You carry army go kill many youth for Lekki, na so water ooo water runaway my eyes. Nothing you go talk wey go justify the case of their murder”, the lyrics read.
“The chief of staff, the commander and the army wey carry order; Mr President, Mr Governor, godfather, gbo gbo ijoba, all your atrocity, all of your corner-corner, make all the dead body disturb you for your dream.”
Burna Boy disclosed that proceeds of the song will be used to support families of victims and people suffering affliction caused by the Lekki shooting.
“May the heavens open and celebrate all our fallen heroes who have died for this movement from the very beginning. Rest in peace to all the beautiful lives lost”, he said.

Cross made this known during a conversation with Pere on Wednesday.
Pere had opined that he felt some type of altercation might have happened between Saga and Nini which led to her sudden exit.

According to him, Nini is the only one that knows what Saga might have said to her which made her take the decision she took.
“Nobody was there with them when they had whatever conversation or altercation they might have had.
“Its only Nini that knows what Saga said to her. And from his behavior I feel like he’s feeling bad probably for something he might have said. Whatever it is they are the only ones that know.
