David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has denied joining Sunday’s protest to call for the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
In a meeting with the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu on Monday, Davido explained that he was in Abuja because of his fans and he came to the protest venue to calm things down.
The international singer had asked maintained that he wanted an open-door meeting with the police boss.
But IGP Adamu has said “How can you come here for a closed-door meeting when you were protesting yesterday and you identified with the protesters?”
“I did not protest, I was not there to protest. I was there to calm things down because the protesters are my fans,” Davido responded
Adamu, however, insisted that Davido had taken an action that projected him as playing a true voice for young people, adding that the agenda of the meeting needed to be streamlined.
