Top-notch actress, Genevieve Nnaji has thrown shades at the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike for issuing directives against protest against activities of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in the state.
AllNews earlier reported that a statement released by the state's Commissioner for Information, Paulinus Nsirim, parents were advised to ensure their children didn't go out to protest in Rivers State, on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, as security agencies have been ordered to clamp down on protesters.
"The Rivers State Government hereby wishes to inform the general public that all forms of protests have been banned throughout the State. Therefore, all proposed protests under #EndSars Campaign are hereby prohibited."
This did not sit well with Genevieve who tagged the governor as a dictator, in a tweet on her Twitter page.
”Your mustache says it all. You could have chosen to be any kind of leader you wanted. You chose to be a dictator. Do you have children? she asked.
Your mustache says it all. You could have chosen to be any kind of leader you wanted. You chose to be a dictator. Do you have children? That’s a shame. LEADERS WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE for every loss of innocent life in their State. #ENDSARSOPPRESSION #EndSarsNow https://t.co/cheJ2t5VAr— Genevieve Nnaji MFR (@GenevieveNnaji1) October 13, 2020
Earlier, in a series of tweets, BBNaija star, Tacha accused Wike of depriving the citizens of their rights to peacefully protest against SARS.
“With all due respect to your Excellency, you are a lawyer and I believe you know better, this is a democratic system and Rivers State belongs to all the daughters and sons of the state.
“It is our right to peaceful protest against police brutality.
