Davido, Nigerian Afropop singer, says he will be meeting with Mohammed Adamu, the inspector-general of police (IGP), in Abuja on Monday amid the ongoing #EndSARS protests.

The music star broke the news on his Twitter page on Sunday evening — hours after the IGP dissolved the special anti-robbery squad (SARS).

In a flurry of tweets, the ‘OBO’ crooner also enjoined Nigerians to join him for the meeting, adding that such would “mean a lot” to him.

“I am meeting with the inspector-general of police tomorrow 10 am …. all my colleagues if you can get to Abuja tomorrow before 10 am and follow me to the meeting! It would mean a lot,” he wrote.

The meeting may not be unconnected to the nationwide protests trailing the disbandment of the police unit.

The ‘FEM’ singer also urged Nigerians not to relax until concrete actions are taken by the federal government to end police brutality in the country.

“Amidst it all. We must not forget the reasons we are protesting, we must not forget the peaceful manner of the protests and we must most certainly not back down until our demands are met! SARS ending is a great start but the task is far from completed!” he added.

“It’s far from over …. we never win anything…we want an executive order, a legislative action & a judicial panel of enquiry set up to prosecute those rogues. Nothing more, nothing less!!”

The award-winning singer, who joined other #EndSARS protesters in Abuja on Sunday, had in his earlier tweets, revealed attempts by the police to disrupt the demonstration by arresting over 20 people.

He later announced that all the arrested protesters have been released.

In past one week, thousands of Nigerians have taken to the streets of major cities like Lagos, Abuja and Ibadan to protest against extortion and brutality by operatives of SARS in a campaign that has continued to gain global attention.
