Nigeria’s hip hop legend, Innocent ‘Tuface’ Idibia, has bowed to pressure and  cancelled  the proposed anti-government protests he was scheduled to lead on Monday.

In a video posted on Instagram Saturday night, TuFace said the protest was under threat of being hijacked by persons who do not mean well for the country.

” Dear Nigerians, after due consultations,  it has become clear that the one voice protest scheduled to hold in Lagos and Abuja on Monday, February 6 is under serious threat of hijack by interests not aligned with our ideals.

” The point I am intent on making is not worth the life of any Nigerian. It is motivated by the need to negotiate a better deal for the ordinary Nigerian.

” I therefore announce the cancellation of the planned protest.

“We would share further information in due course. We appreciate the massive support .

“I am convinced our voices have been heard. May God bless you all, may God bless Nigeria,” he said.

Since Tuface announced the protest and called on Nigerians to join him, he has been under pressure from the Police to shelve it for security reasons.
