Nigerian comic actor and content creator, Debo Adebayo better known as Mr Macaroni has humbly declined the invitation by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to participate in a peace walk he has organized which is set to take place in a few days times.
The Lagos State Governor announced on November 30 that he would lead the peace walk in December “to herald the healing of the land.”
Governor Sanwo Olu also invited some personalities including, Falz, Dele Farotimi, Temitope Majekodunmi, Segun Awosanya (Segalink), Adedotun (Just Detoun), singer Seun Kuti, Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu and Commander of Rapid Response Squad, CSP Yinka Egbeyemi amongst others.
Reacting to the invitation, Mr Macaroni said he is not going to honor the invitation as he recounts how he was molested and humiliated in public during his last peace walk.
“I humbly decline the invitation of Mr Governor.The government themselves set up a panel.The panel has made recommendations.I believe that genuine peacemaking will begin by first implementing the recommendations of the panel.Then we can begin to trust the government.The last walk wey I do, na so them bundle me, strip me naked, brutalize and dehumanize me.I no carry gun, I no carry weapon.As dem dey beat me, dem they ask why I dey disturb Mr Governor.Now dem say make I come do walk?For another round of beating?”, he wrote in parts.
We are yet to also ascertain the stance by the likes of Falz and Seun Kuti on the proposed ‘Peace walk’
