A viral video of school kids on social media has caught the attention of controversial rapper, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley.

Naira Marley made a call for the teachers and other security operatives who wielded guns amid the young students to be arrested. He also stated his intention to meet with the students and seek justice on their behalves.
"The teachers and this stupid uncles with guns need to get arrested.I want to meet all these kids I owe them please help me with the name of the school or link me up with any of my Marlian Kids."
A furious Naira Marley described the woman who recorded the clip as a ‘witch’ and wondered how others would have reacted if they witness their children go through such treatment.
The Soapy crooner called on fans to provide the name of the school as he intends to go there.
