Popular Nigerian musician, David Adeleke, who is well known as Davido, has denied being part of the Nigerians that participated in the protest, calling for the end of the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS, protest in Abuja.
Davido, was actually at the protest ground on Sunday in Abuja and he made the denial during a meeting with the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu on Monday.
In his explanation, Davido insisted that he was in Abuja because of his fans and he came to the protest venue to calm things down.
He made it clear that he wanted an open-door meeting but the IGP said , ”How can you come here for a closed-door meeting, when you were protesting yesterday and you identified with the protesters?
Davido responded,”I did not protest, I was not there to protest. I was there to calm things down because the protesters are my fans.”
However, Adamu maintained that Davido had taken an action that projected him as playing a true voice for young people, adding that the agenda of the meeting needed to be streamlined.
The inspector General of police on Sunday, announced the dissolution of SARS following days of online and offline protests.
