Deji Adeyanju, convener of Involved Nigerians, and singer, Folarin Falana, aka Falz, have condemned the ban on peaceable protest by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.
Recall that Wike in an announcement by the Commissioner for Data and Communications within the State, on Monday banned the EndSARS protest which is to happen, at this time, Tuesday October 13, 2020.
In line with him, the choice to ban the proposed protest follows the scrapping of the Particular Anti-Theft Squad by the Inspector Normal of Police.
However reacting, Adeyanju stated public officers can not decide citizen’s proper.
He tweeted, “No one can ban protest in any state or in any a part of Nigeria.
“Public officers don’t get to find out residents’ rights. #SARSMUSTEND.”
Additionally, Falz wrote, “Who’re you to stop any particular person from exercising their constitutional proper to maneuver and assemble peacefully?”
