The Popular singer, Naira Marley, has called off a planned protest against the activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

He announced the decision after Police authorities said they heard Nigerians’ complaints “loudly and clearly” and had started reforms.

The Police Spokesperson, Frank Mba, will hold a live chat with the singer to discuss the issues.

“We won’t be protesting anymore because there’s a lot of changes being made right now. As a Marlian we will give them a week to see the changes and if there’s no changes we will start a mass protest. #togetherwecan,” the singer tweeted Tuesday.

“Marlian nation feel free to join the live and ask any question you want. #togetherwecan,” he wrote.

Mixed reactions on the Nigerian social media space on Tuesday greeted the announcement that the Police would hold a live chat with Naira Marley on the activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, and how they affect the youth.

The Police announced the plan to dissuade the popular Nigerian singer from leading a protest against the atrocities of SARS personnel recorded across Nigeria.

Naira Marley, whose real name is Azeez Fashola, announced the plan for the protest on his Twitter account on Monday.

“So 9am tomorrow we move 2nd toll gate Peaceful protest. No vandalism, no fights and no stealing,” he tweeted.
