DSS invites Don Jazzy & Tiwa Savage for questioning
Emerging reports indicate that Nigerian artistes, Michael Collins Ajereh is popularly known as Don Jazzy and Tiwa Savage, were invited by the Department of State Services (DSS) for questioning over alleged political utterances against the administration of President Muhamamdu Buhari.
Following frequent reports of sexual assault cases across Nigeria, especially against women, Tiwa Savage launched a movement; “WeAreTired” in protest of the situation.
Through “WeAreTired”, Tiwa called on Buhari’s administration to take action to curb the rise in rape cases.
According to SaharaReporters, the anti-rape movement in addition to several posts on social media calling on the government to live up to its responsibilities to Nigerians earned Tiwa Savage an invitation by the DSS.
Don Jazzy together with Tiwa were invited to the DSS office in Lagos two weeks ago during which they were warned to be careful with their posts on social media.
Shortly after that episode, the two music stars alongside colleagues Waje and Yemi Alade were reportedly summoned by Zubairu Muazu, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, who while revealing that they were taking steps to tackle rape and other problems in the state and country, warned the musicians to steer clear of political comments.
A member of Tiwa Savage’s management team, who confirmed the development to SaharaReporters, said that the mother of one will not stop speaking for Nigerians regardless of government interference.
