Falz, alongside other Nigerian entertainers, have been at the forefront in the ongoing #EndSARS protests, seeking an end to police brutality, harassment, extortion, extra-judicial killings among other vices that are perpetrated by the Nigerian police.
In the open letter, which he shared via his social media pages, Falz demands for a reconstitution of the governing council of the National Human Rights Commission..
The letter reads in part:
“It has been brought to my knowledge via a statement by your Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, that the Federal Government has accepted the 5-point request of the ENDSARS protests presented by well-meaning Nigerian youths.
“Failure to do this would force young Nigerians to believe that the continuous refusal to re-constitute the Governing Council of the National Human Rights Commission is a deliberate attempt to mislead us into thinking genuine efforts are being made at reforming the Nigeria Police, when in truth the opposite is the case.”
He stated his confidence that his appeal to the President will be acceded to, adding that it will guarantee “the protection of the fundamental human rights of all Nigerians”.
