Nigeria’s Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, has taken to social media to ask Naira Marley and other youth not to embark on the #EndSARS protest, adding that the government is working towards fixing the problem.
This comes a few hours after the rapper took to his Twitter page to state that he would be leading the protest, announcing that it will be taking place today, October 6, in Lagos.

What is really going on twitter
“I urge you and other youth not to embark upon any protest. Your grievances are being addressed at the highest level of government.
As the Minister in charge of youth I know this is an issue that must be tackled. Government is doing just that.”
Marley, however, didn’t seem like he was ready to back out of the planned protest. He responded to the minister, asking for assurance.
He stated that news of the government working on tackling is something they have heard on several occasions.
We have heard this before. Four times.
Why will this time be different? Do you really care about the youth? Many of us have been killed and they harass us everyday.
What is the assurance this time? We need assurance” Barcelona star ‘attacks’ Nigerian police over ban of FSARS from routine patrols See the exchange below:
Meanwhile, Nigerian singer, Ayo Balogun popularly known as Wizkid, may have lost himself a fan in the person of a Nigerian lady identified as Zara Gambo.
Recall earlier, Legit.ng reported the news of how the superstar had called Buhari an ‘old man’ and told him to focus on pressing issues in the country after the president sent Donald Trump a goodwill message.
It appears the tone of Wizkid’s message did not sit right with Zara and she took to the Twitter platform to express her displeasure and went on to announce she was no longer his fan.
