Nigeria popular music stars, Runtown, Falz took to the streets of Lagos alongside many Nigerians to protest the unacceptable spats in harassment of Nigerian youths by members of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
It would be recalled that on October 4th, Runtown took to his Twitter handle to express his displeasure on the unjust harassment by SARS. He tweeted that “This has gone long enough and now we MUST take action! I’ll be leading a protest to #ENDSARS on Thursday, October 8th 2020. They MUST listen to us, they MUST make/effect REAL and VISIBLE changes! Empty promises won’t work this time!!!.
“Let’s all come out to peacefully reach out to our “Elected” leaders beyond social media!!! Venue/Take Off Point: Lekki Phase 1, Toll Gate. 10 AM,” the music star tweeted.
Agreeing to Runtown’s move, Falz, tweeted “I will be at the peaceful #EndSARS protest taking place on Thursday, Oct 8 by 10AM. We take off from Lekki Phase 1 toll gate! cc @iRuntown.”
Runtown reiterated his commitment to the protest after Naira Marley pulled out the last minute from the proposed 6th October protest after an interaction with the police force. He tweeted: “Thursday is Thursday.”
