About the Blood on a Flag Movement

Itohan Ferguson

The previous month of June, has been recorded as the bloodiest so far in the year 2018. From the Plateau Massacre that left several hundreds dead and then the Lagos Fire on Otedola bridge that consumed over 50 cars, claimed 9 lives and several still missing. Nigerians celebrities have joined the ‘blood on a flag’ movement, to protest the rising deaths of citizens and the seeming nonchalance of the government to the blood being spilled.

The ‘blood on a flag’ movement was started by film maker and activist, Niyi Akinmolayan. To join the movement, an individual is expected to take a photo, looking quite bloody, while laying on the Nigerian flag. This is to protest the meaningless loss of lives of Nigerians and tell the government that enough is enough.

Celebrities who have joined the ‘blood on a flag’ movement are Shaffy Bello, Ifu Ennada, Frank Donga, just to mention a few. The ‘blood on a flag’ movement will be taken from social media and into the streets, as there will be a march in Abuja on the 4th of July, 2018.
