The world stood still on Tuesday 20th October 2020, when soldiers opened fire on #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate. This was after Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu imposed a 24 hours curfew in the state.
We have to keep our fingers crossed to see the blockbuster, Kunle Afolayan will create with the story of the Lekki toll gate shooting. Meanwhile, Kunle Afolayan has produced top films such as “Figurine”, October 1″, and “Mokalik”.
