Davido Says #EndSARS Protest Was Hijacked & Turned Into Complete Anarchy

Nigerian singer David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has condemned the looting and destruction of properties during the #EndSARS protest.

The music star in a series of tweets shared on Sunday, October 25, 2020, said it was sad to watch the peaceful demonstrations against police brutality descend into violence across the nation.

The singer noted that turning of the peaceful protest into a complete anarchy is a disrespect to those that lost their lives in the struggle. He also wondered the gain in looting private businesses, and the common sense in burning down police stations when one of the demands of the protesters was better police welfare.


Davido called for a stop to the unrest, noting that positive change can only take place in a peaceful society.

“It is painful that what started as a peaceful protest has been hijacked and turned into complete Anarchy, in total disrespect to those that lost their lives during the Peaceful protest. This is def not the way to honour those that lost their lives while protesting peacefully,” he wrote.

“What is there to gain from burning and looting private businesses that provide employment to our own people?? Or burgling or burning houses belong to innocent citizens?! Or burning Buses that our own people depend on for transport to go to work and go about their lives???

“Why burn police stations, when one of our
demands was better police welfare and
training??? Please stop stop stop stop! It all makes no sense whatsoever !! If you know anybody partaking in this, tell them to stop!!”

The EndSARS Protest was notably peaceful right until the shooting of protesters at Lekki toll gate last week Tuesday.

What ensured after the carnage was widespread rioting that led to looting and destruction of government and private establishments in several parts of the federation.
