Reactions have continued to trail the decision by popular singer, Naira Marley to cancel his planned peaceful protest against police brutality.
The singer said he canceled the protest because a lot of changes are being made to check police brutality.
The singer also had a social media live-chat with the police spokesperson, Frank Mba about the issue.
However, a human rights activist, Shehu Sani has reacted to Marley’s decision to cancel the protest.
The former senator in a tweet on Tuesday, October 6, said the musician's decision is similar to that of other singers who backed down on protests.
Shehu said Marley imitated Innocent Idibia (2baba) and Charles Oputa (Charly Boy) who changed their minds about activism.
Meanwhile, Naira Marley has returned with an update for his fans and Nigerian youths who have latched on to his page since he lent his voice to the ongoing EndSARS campaign.
According to Marley, if everything that was promised by the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu is not effected within a week, the suspended protest would be picked up from where it was called off.
In another report, popular Nigerian activist, Deji Adeyanju, recently took to social media via his Twitter page to express his displeasure at top Nigerian music star, Naira Marley.
Adeyanju was not pleased with the musician for calling off the End SARS protest that was slated to take place on October 6, 2020.
The activist described Marley as a coward for calling off the march. He said he was not surprised at all, adding that only Nigerians can save themselves.
