Nigeria top singer, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, has cancelled the planned protest against the continued operations of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police Force.
In a tweet on Tuesday, the singer announced the decision to call off the ‘#ENDSARS’ protest, after an Instagram live chat with Frank Mba, Force spokesperson.
Mba had, in a statement earlier, having tagged Naira Marley, informed “Nigerian youths that their voices and complaints on the issues of unprofessional conducts by some SARS operatives have been heared very loudly and clearly”.
“The Force is irrevocably committed to changing these narratives and undertaking far-reaching reforms to reposition SARS and other Tactical Squads for better service delivery,” the statement added.
“The Orders and restrictions on the operations of SARS and others already issued by the IGP are just the initial steps out of the many reforms planned for the Tactical Squads.
“The Leadership of the NPF will work with the Ministry of Youth and other stakeholders, including Youth leaders, youth entrepreneurs, CSOs and others in formulating and implementing consensual reforms.
“Today, Tuesday 6th October, 2020, by 11am, the Force PRO- DCP Frank Mba will be having a live instagram chat with Naira Marley to answer questions and discuss the concerns of young Nigerians on the issues of SARS operations and other burning issues. Please stay tuned.”
Hours after, Naira Marley took to his Twitter handle, noting, “We won’t be protesting anymore because there’s a lot of changes being made right now.
“As a Marlian we will give them a week to see the changes and if there’s no changes we will start a mass protest. #togetherwecan.”
