‘Police brutality is skyrocketing by the day and the Nigerian government is not deaf nor blind, they see all the trends and tag along with whichever one they like. You don’t have to like this one to do the right thing. The hashtags are becoming tiring. The people are sick of it.’
‘The greatest patriotism is to tell your country when it is behaving dishonourably, foolishly, viciously. This is not the time to point fingers, who are protesting and who is not. It’s time to collectively stop fighting each other and demand good governance. Nobody deserves to be killed for nothing by the people that are meant to protect them. The government should lead by example. Don’t ignore the people when they need you and come back later talking about the people are the problem of Nigeria.’ he said.’
Don Jazzy also expressed his grievances on his Twitter account that the police are killing the citizens. He tweeted, ‘They are doing more of killing us than protecting us. You have lost control of your men. Take these touts in uniforms off our streets. #EndSarsNow’.
