If you’re planning on joining any of the #ENDSARS protest going on in different parts of the country, here are some of the basic things you’ll be needing in other to stay relatively safe.
It is advised you wear clothes that are well covered. Long-sleeved tops, jeans and a sneak.
1. Face mask
We are still faced with the Coronavirus pandemic remember, so it is good to wear a face mask. Face shield would be of great help in keeping you safe from droplets of other protesters being deposited directly into either your mouth, nose or eyes.
2. Power bank
You’ll be needing a fully charged phone and a power bank. Should your phone go off, your power bank should keep your phone charged for easier location identification.
3. Water and snacks
There are lots of trekking involved in protests, bringing a water bottle and some snacks along will be of great help.
It is still the rainy season here in Nigeria. An umbrella will help you keep yourself from being drenched should the heavens decide to cry.
5. Means of Identification
It could be your school ID, work ID or any means of identification at all.
Ensure you bring enough cash along. This would help in transportation and even buying water and snacks for others.
This will contain all your personal belongings. Your snacks, water bottle, wallet, power bank and other items will definitely be safer in a backpack.
8. Bandana or hand towel
This will help keep you safe from the hot sun or tear gas.
Go out and demand an end to mass murder.
