Nigerian artiste, Naira Marley has reacted angrily to a recent video showing Amotekun operatives whisking away young students who modelled themselves after him. You will recall that Naijawide, The Home of Entertainment reported how a group of Amotekun security officers arrested secondary school students in the name of the ‘Soapy Crooner.’
The viral video that filtered all through social media caught the attention of Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, and he has now given a response.
Reacting to the clip, Naira Marley condemned the Amotekun security operatives’ actions, tagging it as a form of ‘child abuse.’ He also called for the arrests of the teachers involved as well as the officers themselves and seemed ready to take the matter up after demanding for the school’s name.
“The teachers and this stupid uncles with guns need to get arrested. I want to meet all these kids I owe them please help me with the name of the school or link me up with any of my Marlian Kids,” he said via an Instagram post.
A woman who is believed to be a teacher in the school was heard describing the youngsters as criminals. She also called out a senior student who called himself Naira Marley, tagging him a bad influence for doing such.
