A Prison in Benin was allegedly attacked by hoodlums who helped prisoners escape. Though what really happened hasn’t been confirmed, connections between it and the ongoing #EndSars protests have been made.

The prison break in Benin arrives amid nationwide protests against police brutality and extortion under the #EndSARS banner and hashtag.

However, Nigerian artists have reacted to the incident, siting that Protesters have nothing to with the prison break.

Davido accused enemies of trying to hijack the protest writing; “They have started hiring thugs to pose as protesters!!! E no go work!!!”

Waje condemned the act writing; “We want the same thing. Unfortunately a few people want to use this medium to spoil the hardwork of the peaceful protesters. We should and never identify with such behaviours. We cannot be demanding change without us being the change we seek.”

While Rapper, M.I Abaga feels the Government have a hand in this as he wrote;

“Play book on how to stop a peaceful protest: 1. Create chaos 2. Step in to seize control”

Burna Boy wrote; “This issue of hired thugs disguising as protesters is wild!! Pls if you’re out in Benin, be careful!”
