- A Nigerian man, Demola, on Tuesday, October 13, proposed to his lover on the protest ground where they were clamouring for an end to police brutality
- Demola said that his friends were present to encourage him as he took the bold step to present his girlfriend the ring
- Congratulations poured in from many to the couple as they wished them a fruitful future together
It was an amazing moment and a sweet twist too when a young man identified as Demola proposed to his lover on Tuesday, October 13, during an EndSARS protest.
Worthy of note is that there have been protests against the disbanded police unit of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) which many accused of gross abuse of human rights.
What made the couple's moment more interesting was that there were people everywhere with their placards.
Close to the lover was a protester, perhaps the friend of the man, holding cardboard which read: "Na woman wey follow me protest we go propose to".
The man was customarily on one knee as he presented the ring to the lucky lady. In one of the photos he shared on Twitter, the lover showed off her ring.

The tweet gained massive reactions on the platform with over 15,000 likes. Many commented on the fact that the protest turned out well for them as others said they are ready to go all out to join the movement.
Below are some of the reactions to the event:
"All these ones done lose focus, na even ontop the placards dem stand put......"
"Lordddd!! I protest too ooo, were is your eyes"
@CSoseano said: "·Hmmmmmm...take me inside and ask me to marry if u propose for public na no I go say oo. Am jux saying in case my future hubby dey here."
"Omo you go tell una kids say... I propose to una mama the day wey we dey fight for our country 13/10/2020. Congratulations."
"I saw this coming.... I knew someone was gonna propose in this protest.. We are thankful for this protest at the same time, cos some people will be meeting their future partners..And they'll get to tell their kids, we met at a protest that changed your generation for good."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian pastor of This Green Church, Tolulope Ayeni, joined the nationwide protest against police brutality.
He said he had to join the call for an end to the maltreatment of Nigerians in the hands of the SARS officers because his members are also being harassed.
Pastor Tolulope said to speak out is a just thing to do and there is nothing ungodly about it, adding that he is not going to keep watching.
