Davido lambasts FCTA ban on #EndSARS protests in Abuja

Popular musician, David Adeleke aka Davido, has taken to social media to slam the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) for imposing a ban on #EndSARS protests in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Recall that CEO Africa had earlier reported that the Federal Capital Territory Security Committee has banned #EndSARS protests in Abuja, the nation’s capital, for alleged violation of the COVID-19 protocols.

The FCT Administration said it was concerned that despite the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad by the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, last Sunday, the demonstrations had continued, causing inconveniences to law-abiding citizens.

The singer, who is one of the leading voices of the #EndSARS campaign in the entertainment industry, and who had read the protesters’ demands to the IGP in his Abuja office earlier this week, has however faulted the decision of the FCTA.

He questioned why the Federal Government allowed electioneering and rallies to hold in Ondo and Edo States where cases of violation of COVID-19 protocol were recorded but is taking a harder stance against protests in the same country.

He tweeted;

“Can’t protest but y’all just had campaign rallies and conducted 2 elections recently !!! Do they think ?? Wtf I’m ANGRY !!”
