Tuface Idibia, the famous Afro-Pop artiste has vowed to go on with his palnned protest on Monday barely hours after the Lagos State Police Command vowed to stop the planned exercise.
The event which was earlier scheduled to hold in Lagos only would also hold in Abuja on February 6, 2017.
Tuface, who made his insistence known on his Instagram account, said the events being organised on the platform of the 2Face Foundation, would commence at 8: am in Lagos and 9: am in Abuja.
In a move indicative that the protests tagged: One Voice, One Nigeria were explicitly about Nigeria, interested participants were asked to put on green attires.
Yesterday’s post to the effect that the protests would go on, was on the heels of a similar notice by a civil society organisation, Enough Is Enough, EiE.
Tuface said the protests were meant to sensitise the Nigerian authorities over the increasing hardship in the country.
The insistence by Tuface generated so many comments on his Instagram account from would-be protesters, who maintained that the grinding hardship in Nigeria made the protests inevitable.
As of the time of filing this report, the social media was abuzz with comments against the plan to stop the protest.
Instructively, those, who questioned the reasons adduced by the Police, insisted that it was the responsibility of the law enforcement agency to maintain law and order during the exercise.
Even a few, who were less sympathetic to the protests, reminded the Police that the right to protest was inalienable.
While dismissing the reasons given by the Police, others pointed at past protests which held in the country without being stopped by the law.
