Popular Nigerian rapper, Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz, has insisted that the protest to commemorate the first anniversary of the #EndSARS must go ahead.
Falz, on his Instagram page, said those who were said to have been killed on October 20, 2020 must be remembered.
He has directed Nigerians to come out and participate in the EndSARS memorial car procession taking place on October 20, 2021.
He said there will be no protest but a procession of Nigerians through the Lekki tollgate in Lagos State.
He wrote: “We will never ever forget that Innocent Nigerian citizens waved flags and sang till they were shot at, injured, and killed.
“We must never forget we are rolling up in cars tomorrow to drive through the tollgate. We know their way, so a procession of cars is the safest option to minimize police harassment.”
Falz assured those participating of safety in their cars.
He said: “We will stay in our vehicles throughout. We have rides for people that need them.
“Each and everyone’s safety is very important so please let’s move together.”
Davido, Chioma Welcome Twins
It’s a double blessing for Afrobeat star Davido and his wife Chioma, who have welcomed a set of twins.
The couple, who lost their son Ifeanyi in a tragic accident last year, welcomed twins on Monday.
According to an inside source, the twins arrived at 9pm.
The news was further confirmed by Evangelist Gospel Agochukwu on Tuesday morning.
The cleric uploaded his chat with Davido on the official Facebook page of his church.
According to the chat, Davido confirmed to the cleric that the prophecy he made last year had come to pass.
Agochukwu had in November last year revealed that God told him that Davido and Chioma will welcome twins after the death of Ifeanyi.
Davido and Chioma haven’t announced the arrival on social media, but congratulatory messages have continued to pour.

Portable In Police Net After 72-Hour Ultimatum
The police in Ogun State have arrested singer, Habeeb Okikiola, commonly called Portable after a 72-hour ultimatum given to him to honour police invitation.
In viral videos on Tuesday, the musician was seen raining curses on and rough-handling some policemen deployed to the recreational centre he owns in Ogun State.
Portable’s actions have since been condemned by the police authorities with the Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, saying the artist exhibited irrational behaviour and hurled insults at police officers carrying out their legal duty.
However, after the expiration of the ultimatum for the singer to honour the invitation, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed that Portable has been arrested.
He told Journalists on Friday that the musician is at the State Headquarters of the police in Eleweran, Abeokuta.
The PPRO said as soon as the investigation is concluded, the artiste will be charged in court.
