One of Nigeria’s top movie directors, Kunle Afolayan has revealed that a script based on the October 20 Lekki shooting is currently being developed.
The Nollywood filmmaker made this known on Twitter while responding to a user who wanted to know if the Lekki massacre will be made into a movie as a sequel to his 2014 blockbuster, ‘October 1’ and if it will be based on the shocking event of Tuesday, October 1, 2020. Kunle Afolayan responded by saying; “It is a must told story”. Script development in progress”.

Afolayan further told newsmen that filmmakers must always try to make sure that stories like this are told.
He said, “As a filmmaker, it is our social and human responsibility to also use our craft to consciously tell stories that will help create positive awareness politically, culturally, and to also document the history for ourselves and generations to come”.
This confirmation was made especially because of some isolated social media comment about what the film industry will do to ensure that the violence which followed the EndSARS peaceful protests are made into films. You would recall that this shocking shooting of unarmed protesters at the Lekki tollgate that rocked headlines worldwide greatly increased the violence 12 days after the protest began.
