Lagos and Abuja, Nigeria(CNN) Police in Lagos fired tear gas Wednesday as hundreds of demonstrators turned up at the Lekki toll gate in a memorial car procession to honor those who died during protests last year in Nigeria's economic hub. It's one year to the day since security forces opened fire on unarmed protesters at the Lekki toll gate. The shooting quashed Nigeria's fledgling youth protest movement, known as #EndSARS. No one has yet been held to account for the violence. The organizers of Wednesday's protests called those who had died "fallen heroes" and said they had to come to the toll gate to remember them.
