#Endsars: IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu, Falz, Burna Boy Accused Of Using Fake News To Create Anarchy

 #Endsars: IPOB Leader Nnamdi Kanu, Falz, Burna Boy Accused

The Global Amnesty Watch (GAW) and some rights groups have accused Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), singers, Falz, Burna Boy, and other celebrities of attempting to create anarchy through fake news, following the recent nationwide #EndSars protest.

The rights groups also alleged that international Non-Governmental Organisations, (NGOs), the founder of Twitter Jack Dorsey, DJ Switch, and the feminist coalition aimed to cause anarchy through false information.

This is contained in a memorandum signed by Abdulmalik Alfa, Werigbelegha Zinake, Linda Etafia, and Sadiq Abdullahi on behalf of International Human Rights Protection Forum (IHRPF), Centre for Human Rights Advancement in Nigeria (CHRAN), Global Integrity Crusade Network (GICN) and Make Nigeria Better Initiative (MNBI).

The groups urged that those at the forefront of spreading false information resulting to near-breakdown of law and order” be brought to book.

“Folarin Falana popularly known as Falz, Disc Jockey, DJ Switch, Feminist Coalition, Burna Boy, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey and Nnamdi Kanu of being in the forefront of this campaign to destroy the nation with fake news.”

“The EndSARS protest across the country is assumed in many quarters to be without a leadership structure. While this position has been canvassed in numerous quarters, however, there seems to be a link with regards to the provision of logistic support to the protesters across the country. It is instructive to state that the EndSARS protest was funded from a well-concealed network that raised over N75 Million from donations from individuals in Nigerian and outside the shores of the country through a group called The Feminist Coalition,” the memorandum reads in part.

They also absolved the military of “any wrongdoing at Lekki toll gate, Lagos or anywhere in the country.”

AllNews earlier reported that DJ who was at the protest ground when Lekki #EndSars protesters were shot by soldiers on October 2020, said that 7 people had died before her phone went off and after that, the death toll had reached 15, and many were hit by bullets.
