According to the former child star, the #EndSARS protest already lost its essence after celebrities and Nigerian youths began to drag the campaign.
Here is what he said in the interview;
“It is about control. That is why you have brakes in your car. It is to know when to stop or slow down, as well as when to accelerate. At a point, the protests got out of control. They started doing parties at the toll gate. We were also all asking for the same thing – basic amenities.
“I know, constitutionally, you cannot use curfews to stop a protest. But maybe, we could have tried to work with the government just for that day. There was peer pressure on most of my colleagues. I know some of them that were pressurised to go out on the streets, even when the government had given us airtime. The pressure was more from the fans. ”
Nigeria has witnessed days of looting and chaos.
