Nigerian musician Azeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley has called off his support for the #EndSARS campaign aimed at protesting police brutality in the nation. He also spoke with Force spokesman Frank Mba on measures to protect the youths amid the #EndSARS campaign.

The singer had earlier called off a protest slated for Tuesday morning in Lagos after the Nigeria Police Office issued a press statement indicating their interest to engage him and the youths in an Instagram live session to address the concerns raised against SARS.

Naira Marley further condemned the activities of some personnel of the force who are in the habit of harassing innocent youths. He said the protest was called off in the interest of the youths and not as insinuated in some quarters that he was threatened.

According to him: “Nobody threatened me, I know my rights. What stopped me was thinking of the safety of everybody and I saw that the police issued a statement.”

In his response, the Force Spokesman, Frank Mba said:

“We need to reform SARS. Let’s be reasonable, are you an armed robber?

“Why will you say they should end SARS? If you end SARS, it means they should end EFCC and other agencies. All we have to do is get them off the road.”

Nigerian youths have been agitated against the activities of SARS, an arm of the Nigeria Police Force.
