Television host, Sope Olajide has reacted to the arrest of musician, Naira Marley by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Sope Olajide lambasted the arrest of Naira Marley, describing it as a shameful act to arrest an individual over social media post and music despite the fact that he has freedom of expression as a fundamental human right.
The TV host pointed out that his arrest has given him a platform to express himself and correct the anomaly in the society.
Read his statement below;
Whatever your belief is on his recent comments on social media , the one thing you can agree on is that @nairamarley is a talented entertainer who has his basic human rights to say whatever he feels .
Yes a lot of people might not agree with his stance on internet fraud including MYSELF however getting arrested by the security operatives #efcc in Nigeria for his social media comments and song title shows the sad state of affairs in my beloved country nigeria ��.
Where known criminals aka GOVT OFFICIALS are left roaming the streets , looting the coffers of the people for lavish lifestyles for them and their families whilst a musician can be arrested and questioned for his thoughts and words NOT ACTIONS at least to the best of my knowledge ….. a clear case of a need for leadership , positive reorientation and direction and a big brother approach to help him see otherwise has been left aside for A SHOW OF FORCE by the corrupt officials in the country .
Guess what you just did #efcc YOU HAVE NOW MADE A MONSTER WITH A BIGGER VOICE THAN U IMAGINED….congratulations @nairamarley here is to superstardom and a voice U MUST NOW USE WISELY.//./. Signed #shopsydoo #freenairamarley
