Segalink Will Join Sanwo-Olu’s ‘Walk Of Peace’

A major member of the End Sars judicial panel that examined and found that security personnel slaughtered unarmed Nigerians last year has decided to take part in the state government’s “peace walk.”

A government white paper released by a panel set up by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu denied the panel’s major allegation that nine persons were murdered at the Lekki Toll Gate while protesting on October 20, 2020.

Activists and civil society organizations slammed the white paper’s conclusion, and many of those invited mocked the governor’s request for a “walk of peace” to provide closure and reconciliation.

On Thursday, December 2, 2021, Segun Awosanya, also known as Segalink, said that he will join the governor’s walk since it will not be done at the expense of justice.

In a series of tweets, he stated that the white paper is not necessarily the end of the atrocity issue, and that there is no need to react to everything with hatred and division.

He stated that just because he agrees with the governor on one topic does not mean he will stop engaging him on others.

“Justice is never a sprint. Even after judgement there is ample room for enforcement. Humanity need not pause until everything is perfect. The healing begins with a change of mindset on all sides,” he tweeted.

Many of those publicly invited by Governor Sanwo-Olu have openly refused the offer, particularly in light of the white paper, insisting that he guarantees victims’ rights are upheld.

However, his government has intensified its push to allow the walk to go place.

When he visited Lagos State University (LASU) on Thursday, students vowed to accompany him on the trek.

A date has not yet been set.
