#EndSARS: Naira Marley suspends planned protest, gives reason

Nigerian singer, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, has suspended the protest he planned against the brutality of operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS).

Mr Fashola had yesterday made public his decision to take to the street and demand the disbandment of the security outfit often accused of brutally assaulting innocent citizens.

“So 9am tomorrow we move
2nd toll gate
Peaceful protest
No vandalism, no fights and no stealing,” the singer tweeted yesterday.

Hours later, Sunday Dare, the minister of Youths and Sports, pleaded with him not to go ahead with the decision.

But on Tuesday morning, the singer suspended the mass, saying a lot has happened barely 24 hours after he made the call with the government promising to make changes.

He, however, said the suspension will be reviewed in a week time should nothing be done on the part of the government.
