#QueerNigerianlivesmatter trends: #EndSARS protest hijacked? – There are alleged plans to hijack the #EndSARS peaceful protests by Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer community..1 min read

Queer is an umbrella term for sexual and gender minorities who are not heterosexual!


As tension intensifies into the Second (2nd) week of the #EndSARS peaceful protest which has drawn the attention of international communities, there are now attempts to circumvent its original purpose which is to #EndBadGovernance and #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeria with a 5of5 put forward by the Nigerian Youths. (See Here)



The feminist coalition in an attempt to show solidarity tweeted:

Our communal fight to #EndSARS is inclusive of the LGBTQ+  community who are also harassed, assaulted and killed by police. They deserve the same justice we seek & even more so, as they are also a target of the law.

You can’t be what you fight against! #QueerNigerianlivesmatter



In response to the tweet above, @seye_oyekunle tweeted:

We Appreciate all the work done by @feminist_co but I’m EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED at the Tweet made by them. This Protest is about #EndSARS. We Appreciate Queer & LGBT but this Protest is NOT about #QueerNigerianlivesmatter WE ARE LOSING FOCUS #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigera

The question now beckons: “Are we Losing focus of why we started this peaceful protest, ab initio!” or Was this the plan from the beginning?
