Nigerian police said Thursday they would not permit a protest to government challenge arranged in the business center Lagos by music star 2Face. The famous Afro-Pop artist, whose genuine name is Innocent Idibia, approached Nigerians not long ago to walk on February 6 in challenge of the administration’s treatment of the nation’s financial emergency.
“Data contacting us uncovered that some hooligans are wanting to seize the tranquil challenge. All things considered, we won’t permit it to hold in Lagos,” Lagos police magistrate Fatai Owoseni told AFP. “We realize that 2Face does not have the ability to contain such a group and we won’t overlay our hands and watch while things leave hand,” Owoseni said. In a video posted on his Facebook account Tuesday, 2Face encouraged Nigerians to turn out in a “serene and lucid way” for the walk. “The requirement for earnest answers for the difficulties confronting Nigerians has turned out to be clear,” he said in the video. “Things are not improving for the greater part, we are still where we are, poor and frantic. I will never again be peaceful.” It’s uncommon in Nigeria for a big name to take such a vocal political position. Be that as it may, when 2Face glided the possibility of a challenge a month ago the thought immediately picked up footing in a nation baffled by a running expansion rate and lazy development. Nigeria’s fortunes fell with the crumple in the worldwide cost of oil, setting off a retreat that has been bothered by revolt assaults on oil foundation and dubious money related strategies, which have prompted to a crippling lack of dollars.
