#ENDSARS: Naira Marley Shelves Planned Protest



Popular Nigerian musician Naira Marley on Tuesday cancelled his #ENDSARS protest scheduled to hold today.

The controversial musician announced the cancellation via his Twitter handle.

“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,” he tweeted.

Recall that Akin Alabi, a Nigerian Lawmaker Representing Egbeda/Ona-Ara Federal Constituency had filed a motion before the House of Representatives praying for a dissolution of the Special Anti Robbery Squad ( SARS) unit of the Nigeria Police.

He stated that the unit has committed enough atrocities and there is more than enough evidence to outlaw SARS in Nigeria.

Hon. Alabi decried the lawlessness of the SARS officers stating that Nigerians have lost faith in the corrupt unit.

“The Fear of SARS polices officers have become the new order of the day” He lamented.

“Policing in Nigeria continues to fall short of modern practices where citizens should be treated with utmost respect and decorum, therefore making it very difficult for an average citizen to truly trust that the police are their friends,” Mr. Alabi said.
