Tacha, ready for protest

By Jennifer Okundia

Natacha Akide professionally known as Tacha, has cancelled the #EndSARS protest she planned to lead Tuesday morning in Port Harcourt, in violation of Governor Nyesom Wike’s ban order.

Tacha, who arrived Port Harcourt this morning from Lagos, had vowed to lead the protest and even laid out the route of protest.

But in a post on Twitter, she said she has cancelled the protest.

Her move, however was however too late. The marchers had already gathered at Pleasure Park, the take-off point of the protest.

“This protest is NOT CANCELLED. The protest is on as we speak! Protesters are assembled opposite Pleasure Park. Movement to start soon!”, wrote JJ Omojuwa, who tagged Tacha.

Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, issued an order on Monday, banning all forms of protest.

His reason was that the protest was needless because the Special Anti Robbery Squad has already been dissolved.

The reality TV star issued a statement on Twitter, stressing that citizens have a right to protest in their country and shouldn’t be denied their civil rights as citizens.

Tacha, who is a Port Harcourt native tweeted that the planned protests would kickoff at 9am, and they would march in routes including: RUMUOLA, GRA, WATERLINES, GARRISON, ISAAC BORO PARK, GOV HOUSE and HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY.
