ISWIS SE02EP25 - The "What Next" Episode
Last week Tuesday, the unimaginable happened. While peaceful protesters sat on the ground at Lekki toll gate, waving Nigerian flags and singing the national anthem, military men opened fire on them, killing and hurting a number of people. What followed were 2 days of widespread mayhem in Lagos with looting and attacks on private and public businesses in the city. It was a terrifying and unbelievably sad time. Since then there has been a lot of misinformation and confusion, and many many many questions. We don’t have all the answers, and actually have more questions, but we dey for you. We discuss our heartbreak over what happened at the Lekki toll gate, present more questions and what we think happens next. Stay strong everyone! We move still.

Hello guys! New week new episode as usual. Before we talk about this episode it’s important that we mentioned that the protest to #EndSARS is still going on all around Nigeria and we want to encourage and implore people to stay peaceful while protesting. We must put an end to police brutality in Nigeria.

ISWIS - The #ENDSARS and Nigerian police brutality episode ft Falz
Over the last few days, there have been a series of protests, against the extrajudicial brutality of the Nigerian police, particularly the “Special Anti Robbery Squad”, a brutal and blood thirsty unit who have used their state sanctioned powers to kidnap, abuse, sexually assault, rob and harass Nigerians for many years with no consequences. No more
In this special episode we speak to Falz, a rapper (and lawyer) who has a passion for social justice issues.
It was a pretty emotional episode but as usual we let these jokes fly. You will notice that FK is not as prominent in the episode and that’s because while we were recording she was lobbying for the release of wrongly arrested protestors, raising and sending money and medical supplies to protesters across the country , a true queen .
Please make sure you play a part in supporting. From social media amplification, to donating, to physically protesting. This is a once in a generation opportunity to do the right thing. Do the right thing
