The rapper questioned Sanwo-Olu on how there be peace when justice has not been served on behalf of Nigerians who had their lives snatched away by the armed forces.
Falz also questioned Sanwo-Olu if he wants to sweep the issue of murdered citizens under the carpet, adding that young Nigerians are still constantly being harassed and extorted by Police officers.
He wrote: This suggestion of a ‘walk for peace’ sounds like a joke and a very disrespectful one at that. People were murdered in cold blood and absolutely no iota of justice has been served more than a year after. How can there be peace without justice?
In this same speech, you said, ‘To be a smart city, we first must be a just one’ Remember that young Nigerians that had their lives snatched away by weapons wielded by our own armed forces? You want to sweep that under the carpet? Is that how to establish a just city #EndSars.
Young Nigerians, till today, are still being constantly harassed and extorted by police officers!! You were awfully quiet about that. Or are you not aware. #EndSars.
