He recently disclosed that he would lead a protest after several young men and women narrated their SARS experiences, but came out today to ask his fans, Marlians, to stand down.
According to Naira Marley, the protest will not hold because there are several changes being made at the moment so it is best to give the police a week to see if things will improve.
He added that if there are no positive changes eventually, he would immediately lead the mass protest alongside fellow angry Nigerians.
His words, “We won’t be protesting anymore because there’s a lot of changes being made right now. As a Marlian we will give them a week to see the changes and if there’s no changes we will start a mass protest. #togetherwecan.”
The Nigeria Police Force had tweeted this earlier, “@officialnairam1 The Inspector General of Police wishes to inform Nigerian youths that their voices and complaints on the issues of unprofessional conducts by some SARS operatives have been heared very loudly and clearly.”
