WASHINGTON, Oct. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Leaders from the newly formed October 20th, 2020 Project (The Project) have engaged Von Batten-Montague-York, L.C., a Washington, DC-based policy and advocacy advisory group, to gain U.S. Congressional and executive branch support for the End SARS and anti-corruption movement currently happening in Nigeria. The Project has also instructed Von Batten-Montague-York, L.C. to advocate for an investigation into the killings of peaceful End SARS and anti-corruption protestors and to push for Global Magnitsky Act sanctions against members of the Nigerian government responsible for the extrajudicial killings committed by the Nigerian Armed Forces before and after the October 20, 2020 massacre.

«For years, the Nigerian government has murdered its people without any repercussions from the international community,» said Nnamdi Nwachukwu, The Project’s Media and Public Relations Lead. «The killings that occurred at Lekki Toll Gate showed the lengths the Nigerian government would go to silence the voices of innocent protestors. The Nigerian-American community is coming together to advocate on behalf of the End SARS and anti-corruption movement. We are grateful to work with an experienced partner like Von Batten-Montague-York, L.C., to help lead this effort.»
