Davido, Nigerian Afropop singer, says he will be meeting with Mohammed Adamu, the inspector-general of police (IGP), in Abuja today, Monday amid the ongoing #EndSARS protests. The music star broke the news on his Twitter page on Sunday evening, hours after the IGP dissolved the special anti-robbery squad (SARS).
In a flurry of tweets, the ‘OBO’ crooner also enjoined Nigerians to join him for the meeting, adding that such would “mean a lot” to him. “I am meeting with the inspector-general of police tomorrow 10 am …. all my colleagues if you can get to Abuja tomorrow before 10 am and follow me to the meeting! It would mean a lot,” he wrote.
The meeting may not be unconnected to the nationwide protests trailing the disbandment of the police unit. The “FEM” singer also urged Nigerians not to relax until concrete actions are taken by the federal government to end police brutality in the country.
“Amidst it all. We must not forget the reasons we are protesting, we must not forget the peaceful manner of the protests and we must most certainly not back down until our demands are met! SARS ending is a great start but the task is far from completed!” he added.
