When a fan tried to suggest she may not be in good terms with Elliot, Uche was quick to shut it down.
"He's actually a friend, I can disagree with him too because I am aware we all amplified #EndSARS as feed up Nigerians not as celebrities."
Actress, Lala Akindoju, held no words back as she expressed her disappointment in the actor/filmmaker.
"Honestly I’m more than disappointed in Desmond Elliot. I’m so shocked. Anyway, we have been praying that God should expose the real state of mind of our leaders. Now we know how he really processes things. I pray the people he looks forward to representing in 2023 remember today."

"Cousin Desmond should have used the same energy to fight for us. Now he's collecting money, we're "children". You can see it's not about age. You can be 22 years old and wicked. "Celebrities yen yen"...they didn't vote for celebs, they voted for you sir."
