#EndSARS: Genevieve Nnaji Slams Wike Over Protest Ban


Superstar actress Genevieve Nnaji slams Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State on Tuesday after the latter barred residents of the state from staging an #EndSARS protest.

The actress on twitter fired back at the governor saying that he chose to be a dictator when he could have chose to be any kind of leader.

She queried him further by asking if he has children.

In a statement released on Monday by Rivers state Commissioner for Information and Communications, Paulinus Nsirim, the governor said the proposed protest in the state is prohibited as there was no need for a protest considering the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had disbanded the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police Force.

Despite Wike’s ban, residents defied the order and trooped out in large numbers today to protest.

The #EndSARS protests have been going on in different states in Nigeria with Nigerians abroad also joining in on the protest from different countries.

Although SARS has been dissolved, the protesters are demanding, amongst other things, a total overhaul of the police force and the release of all arrested protesters.
