A throwback video of Nigerian singer, Habeeb Okikiola also known as Portable, demonstrating during the #EndSARS protest two years ago has surfaced online.
The Zazuu star had taken to the streets with thousands of Nigerians to protest against police harassment and brutality.
The old clip which was shared via Instastory on October 20, 2022, the day of the EndSARS and Lekki shooting memorial, sparked reactions from Nigerians who found it interesting because at the time he was still an up-and-coming artiste.
Portable talked about how authorities need to stop stereotyping the youths as he stated that he is not into internet fraud (Yahoo Yahoo).
The musician held a placard which read; ‘End SARS’, ‘End Police Brutality’, ‘Soro Were’, ‘Soro Soke.’

The EndSARS protests which shook the world in October 2020, saw thousands of young Nigerians marching through major cities in Nigeria over two weeks.
Youths were calling for an end to years of police brutality, assault and extrajudicial killings.
At the procession on Thursday, coffins were carried to honour the memory of the unarmed protesters who were shot and killed by security personnel on October 20, 2020, at the Lekki Tollgate when they were singing the national anthem and waving Nigeria’s flag.
