‘Capitalizing people’s death’- reactions as clothing brand sells bloodied #EndSARS flag outfit for 142k

#EndSARS

A clothing brand has sparked outrage after making a men’s collection out of the bloodied #EndSARS stained Nigerian flag.

Naija News recalls that on the 20th of October 2020, the Nigerian Army allegedly opened fire at unarmed protesters who had stormed the Lekki tollgate to press their demands against police brutality.

The question on who ordered the shooting has continued to linger on many Nigerian’s lips but the youths recently took time to celebrate the fallen heroes at the Lekki tollgate during the one-year anniversary of the protest.

However, a clothing brand, (unnamed) via social media in celebration of some Nigerian youths who lost their lives during the protest put on sale men’s collection made out of the bloodied #EndSARS stained Nigerian flag, going for a price as high as one hundred and forty-two thousand naira per piece.

This has generated a widespread outrage which has led to a serious conversation as many social media users condemned outrightly the turning into a money-making venture of an event that took the lives of young Nigerians.
