Renowned Nigerian artiste, David Adeleke, aka ‘Davido’, has condemned the reported violence threatening to engulf the #EndSARS protests across the country.

Nigerian youths had taken to the streets for over a week across the country, in protest against what they described as police brutality.

Several artists had equally thrown their weight behind the protest, which had gained the support of Nigerians in the Diaspora.

The protest which came to a climax on Monday, Oct. 20, however, had since been hijacked in Abuja and Edo by suspected hoodlums.

Reports show that hoodlums confronted protesters in Abuja during which properties were destroyed and several people were left injured.

The Edo government has also ordered a curfew following a jailbreak in Benin City, which was alleged to have been masterminded by protesters and/or prison officials.

It was against this backdrop, that Davido, through his Twitter account affirmed that the #EndSARS protest was meant to be a peaceful one.

“After seeing all that’s gone on, I just want to say that from the beginning we have preached that the protest must remain peaceful & Law Abiding.

“And as far as I know we have kept to that! And we will continue to keep to that so the narrative can NOT be switched upon us.

“The people they claim broke into prisons to free convicted criminals, burn police stations to steal weapons, damage police, government and private vehicles are criminals and everybody must condemn these acts.

“They are not part of our movement.

“#EndSars is a peaceful and law-abiding protest that is going somewhere great and no mischief can scatter it,” he said.

Recall that Davido recently met with the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu at the Police Headquarters, Abuja, where the demands of the youths were discussed so as to end the protest.
