Nigerian rapper, Folarin Falana, AKA Falz has said Nigerian youths will not be silenced by anyone. There are speculations that some citizens would mark the one year of the protests against police brutality and corruption with another protest. Falz, while reacting to statement by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, barring interested persons from staging any EndSARS remembrance protest, said innocent people were killed just because they were asking not to be killed or brutalized.
However, writing on his Instagram page, the singer alleged that since the unfortunate incident a year ago, no one has been punished for the crime. Meanwhile, the National Economic Council (NEC) on Friday advised Nigerians against protesting to mark the anniversary of EndSARS. A statement signed by Laolu Akande, the spokesperson to Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, urged Nigerians to consider other lawful alternative means of engagement.
4. Thousands call for dissolution of Sudan’s transitional government

Thousands of Sudanese protesters have marched in the capital, Khartoum, calling for the transitional civilian-military government of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok to be dissolved and replaced by a military administration. The protesters demanded, among other things, that General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the head of the armed forces and Sudan’s joint military-civilian Sovereign Council, initiate a coup and seize power. Some chanted “one army, one people” and “the army will bring us bread.”
The demonstration came as Sudan is in the grip of factional divisions that are endangering the country’s transition to democracy after two decades of autocratic rule by Omar al-Bashir ended in April 2019. It follows on the heels of a reported foiled coup attempt on September 21 that the government blamed on both military officers and civilians linked to Bashir’s regime.
5. Mohamed Salah: Liverpool forward ‘the best player’ in the world, says Jurgen Klopp
“We all see it—who is better at the moment than him?”— B/R Football (@brfootball) October 16, 2021
Jurgen Klopp says Mo Salah is the best player in the world right now 🌟
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp called Mohamed Salah “the best” player in the world after the Egyptian’s sublime display in the 5-0 win at Watford. Salah’s glorious pass set up Sadio Mane’s opening goal and he capped a sensational performance with a brilliant individual goal. “He is top. We all see it. Who is better than him?” Klopp told the press. “His performance was massive today. The pass for the first goal was great and the second goal was special.”
Salah has now scored in each of his past eight games for the Reds, the longest run of consecutive scoring appearances for the club since Daniel Sturridge, who also scored in eight, in February 2014. His effort against the Hornets — weaving away from several defenders before curling into the far corner — was of similar quality to his goal in the Reds’ last top-flight match, against Manchester City, which Klopp said would be remembered by supporters in “in 50 or 60 years’ time.” Salah’s goal takes him level with former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba as the highest-scoring African player in Premier League history with 104 goals.
