Nigerian Police Threaten To Arrest 2Face Idibia

NIGERIAN SINGER 2Face Idibia announced last week that he'd be leading a protest, and police have now warned him that he will be arrested if he goes ahead with Monday's march.

The march, which will take place in Lagos and Abuja, is taking place to protest against the worsening economic crisis in the oil-rich state, local media reports.

The popular Afrobeats artist is demanding an "urgent explanation into the reckless economic downturn nationwide," and has called for the support of his fans and colleagues via his social media platforms to join his march against the economic state of the nation.

In a video posted on his Facebook account on Tuesday, 2Face urged Nigerians to come out in a “peaceful and articulate manner” for the march, adding that “the need for urgent solutions to the challenges facing Nigerians has become very clear.

The group coordinating the protest, @EiENigeria, wrote in its Twitter handle: “In view of the latest police update, how do we proceed with the march? Protest continues as planned. #IStandWiithNigeria.

Our leaders owe us their ears too and they must hear us. This march is about connecting the government with the citizens.”
