EndSARS: Peaceful Protest Now Turned Anarchy – Davido Laments Over Protest Outcome
Ace Nigerian singer and music executive, Davido has condemned the turn out of events of the peaceful Endsars protest now turned chaos.
The #EndSARS protest that lasted for two weeks took a different turn when it became hijacked by hoodlums that looted and destroyed both private and public owned establishments.
Davido, in a tweet however regret the development as it destroyed entirely the goal of the #Endsars movement against police brutality and harassment in Nigeria.
“We need a Country where there is law and order for us to make any real change !!! Please stop! It is painful that what started as a peaceful protest has been hijacked and turned into complete Anarchy, in total disrespect to those that lost their lives during the Peaceful protest,” He wrote.
The FEM crooner added, “This is def not the way to honour those that lost their lives while protesting peacefully. What is there to gain from burning and looting private businesses that provide employment to our own people??”
“Or burgling or burning houses belong to innocent citizens?! Or burning Buses that our own people depend on for transport to go to work and go about their lives??? Why burn police stations, when one of our demands was better police welfare and training??? Please stop stop stop stop!
“It all makes no sense whatsoever !! If you know anybody partaking in this, tell them to stop!! It is painful that what started as a peaceful protest has been hijacked and turned into complete anarchy.”
