“It’s imperative that we tell our own stories to the world. The #EndSARS protest of October 20, 2020, is one that has become historical and will forever linger on in the minds of individuals, who were affected and several Nigerians in and outside Nigeria. This is one of the reasons we had to tell the story through film,” Adeoye said.
‘Abdul,’ it was also gathered will premiere at the upcoming 2021 African International Film Festival, AFRIFF.
‘Abdul’ features Abdul Saliou, Franziska Maria, Linda Bockmeyer, and Jimoh Adesola Saidat amongst others.
