Controversial Nigerian singer, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley aka (the Marlian presido), who earlier on vowed to lead a protest against SARS Police harassment on Nigerians, has cancelled the protest saying they would give the authorities one week to see if there would be changes, and if there are no changes, a mass protest will take place.
According to him, he said that the safety of protesters stopped him from going ahead with the planned Tuesday(today) protest. He said this during a live Instagram chat with Frank Mba, the spokesperson of the Nigerian Police Force on Tuesday.
Naira Marley thereafter cancelled the protest saying they would give the authorities one week to see if there would be changes, and if there are no changes, a mass protest will take place.
“I know my rights and yes, what really stopped me was me thinking about the safety of everybody. That was the only thing that stopped me from doing the protest. And the fact that I saw the police initial statement, that’s what made me stop the protest,”.
Well, that’s a good point but he shouldn’t have stopped the movement sha. But he did the right thing. If anything bad happen, same Nigerians will blame him for protesting.
However, Naira Marley demands that SARS should be off the road and stop harassing Nigerians.
“All that the youth want is SARS to be off the road and stop harassing Nigerians, especially the youth, because of the way they are dressed.
SARS is the same as SWAT and we don’t see SWAT anyhow. We only see them for special operations. They should only come out when there is robbery, then, we need all of them to wear uniforms”.
Wow so Naira Marley get sense like this? Wonderment!😂
Naira Marley Just Did What Davido, Wizkid, Burnaboy, Olamide, Don Jazzy & The Rest Nigerian Celebrities Cannot Do. Those ones are just on Twitter, busy doing nothing. When it comes to national issues, they’ll hide.
Naira Marley deserve some accolades jare. Like I said, he shouldn’t have called off the protest. It now looks as if he has been compromised. Anyway, I think he’s already compromised with the EFCC and Covid-19 rule violation case. Maybe he dey fear. But his courage worth applauding. He is the Fela of our time indeed.
DO YOU AGREE? Naira Marley Just Did What Davido, Wizkid, Burnaboy, Olamide, Don Jazzy & The Rest Nigerian Celebrities Cannot Do!
