- Singer Falz said that the protest on Thursday, October 8, in Lekki would continue
- Falz stated that there is no backing down, urging people to join him
- The singer stated that it is a good time to end SARS
Nigerian singer Folarin Falana popularly called Falz has said that he is not backing down on the protest against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) that is scheduled to take place on Thursday, October 8.
The Bop Daddy crooner took to his social media pages to assure Nigerians who would also want to be at the protest that it would still hold.
The protest was organised by singer Runtown in response to the complaints of Nigerian youths over the brutalities they face in the hands of the anti-robbery squad.
The singer said that the take-off point for the protest is Lekki phase one toll gate, on Thursday, October 8, at 10 in the morning.
Falz statement seems to come following the cancellation of Naira Marley's protest which was scheduled to take place on Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
Assuring Nigerians that the protest would still take place, Falz stated that it is time to end SARS for good.
"No going back, no backing down. We have put up with this menace for too long. Young innocent lives are being cut short too often. So much harassment, so much extortion. It’s time to #ENDSARS for good."
