Naira Marley explained that he would wait one week to see if any changes are made concerning the abuse of power by the Special Anti-robbery Squad unit of the police, before leading a protest.
Recall the rapper had made it known that he would lead a protest but backed out of the planned EndSARS protest which was scheduled to hold on the morning of Tuesday, October 6.
Amidst mixed reactions, he explained that the protest will not be going on as planned due to new assurances by the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
