There was drama today at the Enugu #Endsars protest when the state governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi refused to address protesters but chose instead to address thugs who came to ferment trouble with the peaceful protesters. The governor would later walk out on the protesters with the thugs following.

This much was revealed by singer, Chinedu Okoli, more popularly known as Flavour, while raising the alarm over threat to his life. The singer took to his verified Twitter account to state that if anything happens to him or other #ENDSARS protesters, the Enugu State Government should be held accountable.

The singer led the #ENDSARS protest in Enugu with fellow entertainers KCee, Phyno, Masterkraft and Zoro.
Flavour tweeted, “Enugu! Today our lives were threatened and we are making it clear that if ANYTHING happens to any single one of us or any protestors, let it be known that it was done by the ENUGU STATE GOVERNMENT! @phynofino@ZoroSwagbag@iam_kcee@masterkraft_.”

In a series of tweets, the Ada Ada singer claimed that the governor of the state, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, refused to speak with the peaceful protesters. He tweeted, “Today, our peaceful protest in Enugu from Ogbete Market to the Enugu State Government House was going well until we reached the government house. Along the way, we noticed a group of thugs joined the protests.

Flavour continued, “The governor came out but refused to speak up and address the protestors, instead he addressed the thugs. The thugs tried to fight us but we maintained peace because we recognized their plan. We made sure the youth remained calm yet the governor refused to answer our questions! Instead, he walked out on us, unapologetically, with the thugs following him. We made it clear that we knew the people he was pretending to address were paid thugs.”

The singer reaffirmed that the #ENDSARS protest would remain peaceful. “As we have been saying: The movement won’t stop! We come in peace as always! #NewNigeria #NewEnugu #EndSARS #EndSWAT #EndPoliceBrutality,” he said.
