Nigerian rapper Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana and Nigerian Instagram comedian Debo ‘Mr Macaroni’ Adebayo have reacted to the governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu proposed ‘walk of peace.’
The governor called for peace and harmony, Tuesday, as he broke his silence on the report of the Lagos judicial panel of inquiry into police brutality and the Lekki tollgate shooting of unarmed, peaceful protesters. He declared in a speech that there will be a Walk of Peace and Reconciliation in December.
“In December, I will be leading A WALK FOR PEACE to herald the healing of our land. Let me use this occasion to extend an open invitation to our youths, members of the diplomatic corps, civil society groups, students and the media as well as other stakeholders to join me,” he said.
He invited key EndSARS stakeholders to join him in the Walk. Some of these include Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana, Debo ‘Mr Macaroni‘ Adebayo, Adedotun (Detoun), Segun ‘Segalink‘ Awosanya, Temitope Majekodunmi, Seun Kuti, Dele Farotimi and others. He also called upon the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu and Commander of Rapid Response Squad, CSP Yinka Egbeyemi to participate in the process.
He tagged it a move to heal Lagos State but Falz and Mr Macaroni rejected the invitation by the Governor.
Falz in a response took his Instagram page. He wrote;
“Please tell your governor that there is no “March for peace” without justice. He is still trying to deny the massacre that happened. All the lives that were wiped away unjustly. You set up a panel to investigate the matter. Panel don tell you say people die by the hands of soldiers and policemen wey una send. Una still no want no want do the right thing. And you’re here asking for a ‘peace march’. DISGRACEFUL.“
