Azeez Adeshina Fashola, known professionally as Naira Marley, has cancelled his planned demonstration to protest police brutality and call for the government to ban the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
The singer had earlier stated that he would lead a protest today to call for change after many young men and women narrated the horrific harassment SARS officials have subjected them to.
This morning, however, he returned to Twitter to ask his fans, Marlians, to stand down. He stated there will be no protest for now.
He tweeted: “We won’t be protesting anymore because there’s a lot of changes being made right now.
As a Marlian, we will give them a week to see the changes and if there’s no changes, we will start a mass protest. #togetherwecan.
