Was 2Face Paid To Protest?

2Face Idibia’s response to the call for a peaceful protest on February 5 in Lagos is raising suspicious eyebrows in some quarters.

Some are insinuating that the popular musician’s decision to the join the protest was galvanised by monetary influence from some Nigerian politicians.

They claim 2Face is not a Social Activist and that his plea on social media for a protest over the state of the nation is politically motivated.

Those crying foul claim that some political elements who want to disrupt the current administration are the ones who have sponsored the top African songster to join the protest.

However, this claim lacks credibility and evidence; to date, no one has been able to prove it.

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni said he will not allow the protest to hold as it may be hijacked by hoodlums.

He also indicates that 2Face and the protesters have not officially informed the security agencies in the state of the planned protest.

Analysts also faulted the Commissioner of police’s promise to stop the protest due to the threat of hijack by hoodlums.

The commissioner claims 2face does not have the capacity to contain the potential crisis and trouble the hoodlums have planned to cause during the protest.

He is advised to provide the full and detailed security if the protesters meet the requirements to carry out their plan.

A social commentator anonymously said: “It is his duty to provide security and the protesters have the right to protest. That’s the beauty of democracy”.
