Nigerian Senator Shehu Sani has reacted to the viral speculations that the police might stop 2face Idibia from staging the nationwide protest.
Reports went viral earlier today that the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, has issued a threat to stop popular musician, Innocent Idibia also known as 2face from embarking on his nationwide protest scheduled for February 6.
Recall that the popular singer had recently announced that he would be leading a nationwide protest against the alleged “obnoxious policies” of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Following the CP's alleged declaration, the senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani, has come out to blast Owoseni.
Reacting to Owoseni’s threat, Shehu who took to his twitter handle on Friday said it was wrong for the police to refuse Tuface permit to hold a peaceful protest.
He wrote: “It’s simply wrong for the police to deny or refuse permit to 2Face to organise a peaceful protest. Protest is a right in democracy.
“There is no society as inflammable as the one inhabited by a people with little or nothing to lose.”

“People have the right to protest. Whoever they want to support or oppose is their right.
