With a spirit of resilience, Mr. Macaroni passionately called upon the Nigerian police to stand on the side of justice, urging them to release all individuals who participated in the 2020 protests remaining in custody.
“We are here to honour the dead, to honour the lives of those that were lost on October 20, 2020. I want to use this opportunity to call for the unconditional release of all those who are still unjustly imprisoned. There are still some protesters who have been in prison since 2020, lawyers have been on the case every day but till now they’re still there. We are using this opportunity to call those concerned once again for the unconditional release of the protesters,” said the actor.
Emphasizing a shared desire for tangible improvements within their lifetimes, Mr. Macaroni underscored the urgency for positive change in the country. The call for progress and accountability echoed through the streets as citizens rallied for a brighter future.
