David Adeleke, Nigerian Afropop singer better known as Davido, has denied joining Nigerians in the #EndSARS protest staged in Abuja on Sunday.
During a meeting with Mohammed Adamu, the inspector-general of police, on Monday, the artiste said he visited the protest scene to calm down his fans.
A live stream on Instagram showed that the IGP refused to allow Davido’s entourage to be a part of the meeting saying he was part of the protesters.
“The point I am trying to make is that you identified with the protesters yesterday,” the IGP said.
In response, the ‘Fem’ singer said: “I did not protest, I was not there to protest. I had to identify with them because they are my fans and I was there to calm them down”.
Adamu said Davido had already taken an action that projected him as playing a true voice for young people on the street.
” I am trying to say that you’ve already taken actions that have projected you as playing the true voice of the young people on the street,” he continued.
“There is nothing to hide, we can all have the meeting together but we need to streamline the agenda”.
