Adesua defends Banky from man who said he is trying to divide the youths

 

Nigerian actress, Adesua Etomi has defended her husband, singer and politician, Banky W, from people saying he is a politician and is trying to use a divide and conquer strategy on the youths.

This is coming after a twitter user advised #EndSARS protesters to resist Banky W, as he has been sent to use divide and conquer strategy on the youths.

Adesua then jumped in, saying she will and cannot allow his name to be dragged in the mud, as he has marched, given food out in protests, cleaned the streets and more.

Read as she wrote on twitter;

“What you are doing is so wrong. The person you are talking about ran AGAINST the powers that be. To the detriment of his own income, his family and spoke out against these issues. Has always spoken out against these issues. What he posted, the youth that you see asked him to help

He contested under a party that wasn’t known. Used his own income. Gave up endorsements to run. There are people that are good that will try to run for office and they should do it without being afraid that they will be targeted because they tried to run to make the system better\

We are here to fight for Nigeria and EVERYONE that wants the good of this nation should be allowed to fight for it. Trying to divide people and use someone as a scapegoat because you don’t like a suggestion is WRONG. The government is the problem, not Banky.

He hasn’t been sent to divide. He isn’t working with any government and I will and cannot wait back and allow his name to be dragged in the mud. He has marched, given food out in protests, cleaned the streets and done it anonymously for the most part.

Please do not do this. We have a common enemy. We have a common goal and it is to #EndSARS
We all should really know better. God bless.”

Army denies shooting #EndSARS protesters at Lekki tollgate

 

The Nigerian Army has denied allegations that it shot and killed peaceful end SARS protesters at Lekki toll plaza on October 20.

The denial was disclosed in a statement released by the 81 Division of the Nigerian Army (NA)

The Acting Director Army Public Relations (ADPR), Major Osoba Olaniyi, however, confirmed the involvement of soldiers in restoring order in Lagos following the imposition of a curfew on the state by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Read the statement below:

“The attention of Headquarters 81 Division Nigerian Army has been drawn to a viral video on social media in which it was alleged that civilian protesters were massacred by soldiers at Lekki Toll Plaza. This allegation is untrue, unfounded and aimed at causing anarchy in the country.

At no time did soldiers of the Nigerian Army open fire on any civilian. From the onset of the ENDSARS protest, there was no time personnel of 81 Division Nigerian Army Lagos were involved.

However, the decision to call in the military was taken by the Lagos State Government (LASG) after a 24- hour curfew was imposed.

This was as a result of the violence which led to several police stations being burnt, policemen killed, suspects in police custody released and weapons carted away.

The situation was fast degenerating into anarchy. It was at this point that LASG requested for the military to intervene in order to restore normalcy.

The intervention of the military followed all laid down procedures for Internal Security operations and all the soldiers involved acted within the confines of the Rules of Engagement (ROE) for Internal Security operations.

Finally, Headquarters 81 Division Nigerian Army reiterates Nigerian Army in the discharge of its constitutional responsibilities did not shoot at any civilian as there are glaring and convincing evidence to attest to this fact.

This allegation is the hand work of mischief makers who will stop at nothing to tarnish the image of the Nigerian Army. The general public is hereby enjoined to discountenance this allegation as there is no iota of truth therein.”
