Music star, Davido on Monday responded to backlash from social media users who criticized him for denying that he joined #EndSARS protests during a meeting with spokesman of the Nigerian Police Force , Frank Mba at force headquarters in Abuja.

Just one day after the ‘FEM’ singer announced he would having a close-door stakeholder meeting with the Inspector General of Police, he took to social media to clarify his comment with a public statement.

“I am Nigerian first before anything ..,” Davido captioned the letter. He went on to clarify that he did not deny protesting but his comment was taken out of context as he was merely explaining that he went to the protest in solidarity with the protesters.

“Mr Mba had seen videos and pictures of myself on social media in solidarity alonsgide my fellow Nigerians and asked what happened as he also knew that was not the plan,” she explained. “I then explained the reason i got involved with the protesters and led them down to Force HQ so I could dialogue with the officers in charge who were accused of effecting arrests.”

He added, “I was there until we were given assurance that all protesters were released and we left shortly after. Hence my ‘I didn’t protest’ explanation I am not one to fear police or fear protests.”

The post comes after the music executive garnered some backlash over his planned meeting with the IGP, notably from Twitter activists.
