Popular Nigerian rapper, Folarin Falana aka Falz has come out to condemn Saturday’s arrest of comedian, Debo Adebayo aka Mr Macaroni, and other peaceful protesters at the ongoing #OccupyLekkiTollGate protest.
He expressed his dissatisfaction on his official twitter page, he said;
‘‘Which crime did you see there?!! Which f**king crime?!! When the real criminals are out, you are busy hiding. GTFOH,’’ he fumed on Twitter.
‘‘I am tired of just coping. I am tired of just managing. This is a fucking shithole we are living in and we simply cannot continue like this.’’
‘‘They are using this threat of force & violence because they expect that we would naturally fear for our lives, but the life we dey live no kuku get meaning before.
His colleague, Djinee, also, joined the debate, saying, ‘‘Imagine if instead of brutalizing unarmed peaceful protesters, Gov @jidesanwoolu had ordered the police on the ground at the #Lekkitollgate to provide protection for protesters against touts who might come to cause trouble. Another chance to write his name in gold missed here.’’
More protesters arrested at the Lekki Toll Gate have been taken away from the scene in a Lekki Concession Company Black Maria, as armed policemen continue to crack down on peaceful protesters at the toll plaza.
