In the phase of the ongoing protests, Falz who happens to be one of the numerous celebrity activists helped lead one of the first protests two weeks ago and has since been a partaker of the public outcry for justice and fairness in the Nigerian political and judicial landscape.

The singer who gave an overview of why SARS was created, also highlighted the grievances of the Nigerian youths against the controversial police unit which is centred on “profiling.”

Falz further pointed out that the major issue surrounding the disbandment of SARS is that same claims have been made continuously over the years and yet nothing changes. 

When asked if he’s afraid to die like others who are scared to speak in front of the camera, Falz argued that he isn’t.

Because he can easily get killed by other things in Nigeria which include, unemployment, the poor health care system and bad roads. 

He added that it is disheartening that the Nigerian government is dragging its feet in implementing some of the reforms it claims it has arranged.
