One of the most popular Fuji artists in Nigeria, Alhaji Wasiu Alabi Pasuma was booed by #EndSARS protesters at the protest ground in Alausa, Ikeja, the Lagos State capital.
The protesters ventilated their anger at Pasuma due to the claim that the chairman of the Lagos State Chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo allegedly hired miscreants to attack protesters with a view to disrupt the protest.
The Fuji’s solidarity visit to the protest ground on Sunday in the company of his associates and bodyguard was met with disapproval.
It was alleged that MC Oluomo was alleged to have sponsored last Thursday’s attack on protesters in Alausa.
The protesters wondered why Pasuma was at the protest ground when his alleged paymaster, MC Olumo was behind the attack which left many protesters injured and vehicles destroyed.
The protesters claimed it was the Lagos State government and most likely in cohorts with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who may have directed Oluomo to disrupt the protest.
The youths were obviously not pleased with his presence at the Alausa protest ground on Sunday as they chased him from the venue.
The singer who was earlier seen with a microphone addressing the crowd was later sent away as the youths said they did not want him among them.
Pasuma said on his Instagram post that he joined and support the call for an end to all forms of anomalies, excesses and bad governance that have been posing threats to Nigeria’s development and her image.
Pasuma acknowledged he was also one of the victims of failed electoral promises over the years in Nigeria.
He said it is disheartening and discouraging to see how bad leadership continues to destroy the country’s potential, especially that of the youths.
He advised that the protesters be peaceful. “Let there be no violence, chaos of any sort, but the MOVEMENT for justice and GOOD GOVERNANCE! We fight for a safer, developed clime and a Better NAIJA as we wouldn’t keep silent but SORO-SOKE! Long live NAIJA! God bless our Youths. #Endsars #Endswat #endpolicebrutalityinnigeria,” he stated.
