Popular Nigerian Comedian, Mr. Macaroni whose real name is Debo Adebayo has come out to say a lot and he has disclosed all that happened on the 13th of February, 2021 which was the day the Nigerian Police Force arrested peaceful protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate protesting against the opening of the Lekki Toll Gate.
Recall back on the 13th of February, 2021 that was a Saturday when Mr. Macaroni was arrested for protesting peacefully and then was really brutalized by the Nigerian Police Force. Mr. Macaroni has now come out to say he never regretted what happened to him.
Mr. Macaroni took to his social media platforms today Sunday 21st February 2021 as he released an acted video explaining all that happened on that fateful day. The video Macaroni shared shows that he actually didn’t want to go for a protest that day, but he had to go because there were a lot of people there.
The video Mr. Macaroni shared showed how he and others were severely beaten after they were arrested.
You can watch the video below this article.
Macaroni was then interviewed after the whole incident in the acted video he shared, he then was asked, Did you regret your decision to go out to the tollgate that peaceful day?
He smiled and continued,
“Regret? No! Never! I thank God. I thank God I was there because I saw with my eyes and I saw a lot. I also saw the way things are in this country and at least I have an idea how brutal these people can be, how wicked, how heartless, how there’s zero value before human lives, and how they are willing to treat anyone, anyhow, just in a bit to silence people. So, no I do not regret it, I thank God I was there.”
He was then asked another question which is, ‘So if a situation like this should arise, say a protest… Would you lend your voice?’
“We must never get tired of lending our voices. Never! Should we keep quiet in the face of oppression, in the face of dehumanization, in the face of brutality? We must never get tired of lending our voices. If you talk, you would die, if you don’t talk, you would die. So why not stand up for what is right, stand up for what is just.
“Sometimes, you step back and watch. Sometimes, you calculate your steps, you watch your steps, but we would never get tired of talking. We would never get tired of talking. We would never get tired of demanding a better government because it’s the least that we deserve.
“Whoever you are, no matter the number of followers you have, no matter your status, so far you are using your voice on your platform to speak about the ills of the society, that’s lending your voice and it takes a lot of courage to do that.”
“Baba Fela once said, But sha, I still dey and they shall be no compromise. For a better Nigeria!!!”
Finally, Mr. Macaroni has said it and he has said he never regrets going to the Lekki Toll Gate to protest on the 13th of February, 2021 which seems to be the right decision and answer.
What do you think about all Mr. Macaroni has just shared?
