Folarin Falana, a Nigerian rapper also known as Falz has also contributed to the ongoing trend in the country on the arrest of Omoyele Sowore, AAC presidential candidate by the Department of State Services (DSS).
Naija News recalls that Sowore had earlier made a statement about a revolution and called on Nigerians to join him for a protest before he was arrested over the weekend.
His arrest, however, has prompted comments and reactions from many social media observers and on TV shows where different persons have been interviewed to seek their opinions.
The protest which started 5th august, 2019 has been tagged “revolution now” meanwhile the Nigeria Police Force has described the sudden protest as ‘treasonable felony and acts of terrorism.’
The police force has however promised to refuse any act from any citizen whatsoever that could lead to a violation of law and order in the country.
Falz has publicly expressed his displeasure about the rate of poverty and unemployment in Nigeria.
“What we are facing is a build-up of the several years of neglect of the welfare of our people,” Falz stated on his tweeter page
“Our government’s constant disregard of the loss of lives of many Nigerians’
“The ridiculous rate of poverty and unemployment that afflicts us.
“This is not a time to arrest anyone but to listen to the voices of the masses. Organizing a protest march does not in anyway amount to treason. #FreeSowore Immediately!”
Naija News reports that Falz is the son of the popular Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana.
