Trikytee who described himself as a Nigerian youth who is passionate about the movement, went on to tag the reports false, stating that there was no way he would sit out on the protest despite his management's advice that he tones down.
"I have seen tweets going round about me requesting for money to support the #Endsars protest with my people in Bayelsa. Firstly that is not true and a lot of people can testify that I have been in support of this protest both online and offline. The news making rounds online is completely false and should be treated as such.
I am for a good Nigeria and an end to police brutality. I have been out almost every other day in Lagos protesting alongside concerned Nigerian youths."
