Popular musician, Douglas Jack Agu aka Runtown has vowed to go ahead with a protest he called for Thursday to demand a permanent solution to the atrocities committed by operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS).
He said this in a tweet on Tuesday minutes after another popular artiste, Naira Marley suspended a similar protest scheduled for today.

Runtown had called the protest on Sunday as many Nigerians lashed the Federal Government and police authorities for failing to rein in operatives of FSARS who have been accused of harassing, extorting, maiming, and killing Nigerian youths.
The artiste accused the government of insincerity in ending the atrocities.
He wrote, “This has gone long enough and now we MUST take action! I’ll be leading a protest to #ENDSARS on Thursday, October 8th 2020.
“They MUST listen to us, they MUST make/effect REAL and VISIBLE changes! Empty promises won’t work this time!!!
“Let’s all come out to peacefully reach out to our ‘Elected’ leaders beyond social media!!! Venue/Take Off Point: Lekki Phase 1, Toll Gate.”
