The fight for human rights still moves on in Nigerians despite the threat from the government. As you already know, a list of protesters was compiled and published on the internet, as they were asked to come to court, for orchestrating the #endsars protest that led to the killing of innocent Nigerians on October 20th, 2020.
Names of prominent celebrities who joined the protest were not found in the first compliant list, and that raised lots of eyebrows, as the validity of the list was being questioned saying they are scared of the celebrities that were why they never mentioned their names on the list.
Well, Nigerian human rights activist Kenechukwu Okeke, who works for the federal government has compiled the second compliant list, has released it late hours of today November 10th, 2020. This time, the list carries the names of top prominent celebrities in the country. The likes of: Don Jazzy, Peter & Paul (Psquare), Yul Edochie, Kanu Nwankwo, Uche Jombo, Banky W, Tiwa Savage, AY Makun, Falz And Mr Macaroni, sueing them all For Supporting The #EndSARS Protest.
Mr. Okeke who filed the compliant list was also called out on twitter, saying he is a stooged and a disgrace to human rights.
Well, Nigerians have reacted differently to the current list upon seeing the names of the Psquare brothers’ Peter and Paul, on the list.
For many, this will be a great avenue for both brothers to come on good terms and settle when they meet in court, some are
These reactions on Twitter has made Psqure trend, after years of being apart, as Nigerians cant see them come back together, cause of the great music they were serving us years back.
On the other hand, some were making jokes out of the court order, saying the government should have just them they wanted to have a concert than asking all the top Nigerian musicians to appear in court.
Haven said that this whole scenario reminds us of Kemi Olunloyo’s post, asking celebrities to flee to other countries as the government will be coming for them one after the other just like they did with Dj Switch but were late cause switch was already granted asylum in Canada and as such could no longer be touched by the Nigerian government.
Meanwhile, most of the celebrities that their names are on the list seems not to care as they just cant wait for the court hearing.
Well, one can’t help but wonder if we are in a military regime or democracy as the citizens no longer have rights to peaceful protest as their lives are being threatened by the government.
