Falz and Macaroni said they would not be attending a peace walk with the Governor

The Governor had invited Falz, real name Folarin Falana, Macaroni, Dele Farotimi, Temitope Majekodunmi, Segun Awosanya (Segalink), Adedotun (Just Detoun) and Seun Kuti. The Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu; and Commander of Rapid Response Squad CSP Yinka Egbeyemi and others were also invited to join him in the “historic march for our dear Lagos.”

However, Macaroni declined the invitation, saying he is yet to recover after being brutalised by the police for going for a peace walk earlier this year.

On this Twitter, the comedian wrote;

“I humbly decline the Invitation of Mr Governor. The Government itself 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.”

“Finally, I’m not at war with anyone. Not with the government, police or politicians. All we are asking is that our leaders place value on our lives as citizens and lead us with love, fairness, truth and justice, to enable all Nigerians live a better life in peace and unity,” he wrote

For Falz, the idea of a peace walk without justice was ridiculous. On Twitter, he wrote,

“The suggestion of a “walk for peace” sounds like a joke and a 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?,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, the Lagos state government has declared in their white paper that no one was killed at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020, despite overwhelming evidence in the Judicial Panel report.
