Nigerian, comedian, actor, content developer, social media influencer and entrepreneur; Debo Adebayo, popularly known as Mr Macaroni, said he has been threatened severally since the first day he started protesting and he is not ready to back out, he revealed that he has not said anything about it because it is a normal thing that happens in protests to make people back out, and he is saying it now to create awareness and not because he is fearful.
In his words; “Since the very first day I stepped out into the streets up till yesterday even before leaving Alausa, I have been threatened severally. I don’t tweet about them because it is normal in protests. I am safe presently but I am being threatened!! No be fear!! Na Awareness!!!! ✊🏿”
Mr Macaroni is One of the public figures that has passionately protested for the #ENDSARS movement. Recently, in an interview with award winning media personality; Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, when Mr Macaroni was asked why he felt it was necessary for the President to physically speak on the ongoing protest, he said “when you are in a state where your citizens are crying to you, you have no business sending tweets to us, because where was this energy when you wanted to be president ?. If you are on top of the situation, you should everyday give a situation report”
Speaking on the Lekki toll gate situation, Debo Adebayo said, “Like I said yesterday, for now, the only option we have is to stay safe!! The government has shown that they will stop at nothing to intimidate, silence, threaten and kill us!!! The same government that should be protecting us is killing us!!! Stay safe!! Stay Conscious!!! Except no be say na better Nigeria all of us dey fight for!!!! This oppression no go last!!!
Alausa!!! Please take cover!!! We don’t want to lose any more lives!! Please!!!! Our lives don’t mean anything to the government and they are killing us at will!!! Please guys!!!
…Watching that young man suffer for everyone of us!!! No one deserves to be in that kind of pain for demanding for a better Nigeria!!! What have the Nigerian youths done to deserve being killed in broad day light by their own government?? We can’t let this slide!!!”
Still speaking to the government on the issue of using brute force to handle the ongoing situation in Nigeria, as well as addressing the youths of Nigeria, Mr Macaroni said; “Truth is that we need to remain peaceful!! We cannot become the same thing we are protesting against!! We cannot continue to lose more innocent lives. We need to align our thoughts and educate ourselves!! Since we are all leaders, we all must take responsibility!! #EndSARS
This is happening because we refused to meet violence with violence!! So many times we have maintained peace on the protest grounds and what do we get?? More violence!! We are decent and the government know that and they continue to use that against us!! #EndSARS
The government wants us to believe they are working to meet our demands but they can’t even guarantee the safety and security of peaceful protesters and innocent citizens from thugs!! What exactly do they think we have been fighting for??? #EndSARS
Only if government can take action today! The president should address the Nigerian Youths and announce that all our concerns have been taken care of. Peaceful protesters will leave the streets to re-strategize and be ready to hold the government accountable anytime!! #Endsars”
