VETERAN Juju singer, Ebenezer Obey-Fabiyi, has expressed how protest by the Nigerian youths took many – including the government – by surprise.
The Veteran singer said that the protest to end the infamous police unit, Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), is a good one which shows that Nigerians can be truly united for good.
The singer while speaking to journalists at the celebration of the fifth anniversary of the Gtext Homes family, said the demands of the youths were not new but their organisation took everyone by surprise.
“This protest is a big surprise and no one was expecting it. Everyone was pushed to the wall. EndSARS is a good movement because that is the only way we can correct many ills and things that are not right in the country. Our leaders should see this and think that something is wrong beyond our imagination. I pray God would help us”
Obey also noted that though there is no way anyone can please the world, he hopes the government can harkens to the voice of the youths and give in to their demands.
He then joins a horde of celebrities that have lent their voices to the protest in the last two weeks.
