As planned earlier today, indigenious nigerian rapper, Naira Marley finally had a live video chat with the Inspector General of Police, Frank Mba on Instagram.
During their over 20 minutes chat, Naira Marley regularly questioned the IG’s stand on the state of the Special Anti-Roberry Squad (SARS) that has turned into a menace for the common Nigerian youth.
While the chat proved pretty inconclusive nor didn’t produce a particular result, Naira Marley did do his best to draw out answers from the IG who swerved some questions. The chat started with only Naira Marley’s face as the IG’s end was dark for quite a while.
Moving forward, the IG confirmed having dreadlocks or holding phones doesnt make one a criminal, he also re-emphasized on the fact that FSARS has now been banned from searching vehicles, mobile phones or performing road checks. He also advised people to record videos of the tactical unit during attacks, he said, “If a policeman is on the road and he’s doing a wrong thing, if you can record him SAFELY, record him”.
Most of the chat was pretty inaudible from the IG’s end though and Naira Marley ended the interview with a warning to the youths, telling them not to try to play smart with old videos which they tag as ‘happening now’.
