DSS Vs Nigerian Celebrities: Your Insensitivity Must Stop – Com. Timi Frank To Buhari

Following the invitation of Nigerian music producer, Michael Ajereh popularly known as Don Jazzy, and Tiwatope Savage popularly known as Tiwa Savage, by the Department of State Service for questioning over alleged political utterances against the administration of President Muhamamdu Buhari on social media, political Activist and former Deputy Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress(APC) Timi Frank has urged president Muhammadu Buhari to desist from his insensitivity.

Don Jazzy and Tiwa Savage

In recent months, following a sharp rise in sexual assault cases across Nigeria especially against women, Tiwa Savage began a movement known as “WeAreTired” in protest of the situation.

Through the movement, the musician called on Buhari’s administration to take action to stem the tide of rape in the country.

The above in addition to several posts on social media calling on the government to live up to its responsibilities to Nigerians earned Tiwa Savage an invitation by the DSS.

Together with Don Jazzy, Savage was invited to the DSS office in Lagos two weeks ago during which they were warned to be careful with their posts on the social media.

Shortly after that episode, the two celebrities together with colleagues Yemi Alade and Waje were summoned by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu, who while sharing efforts they were making to tackle rape and other problems in the state and country, warned the musicians to steer clear of political comments in order not to incur the wrath of the President Buhari administration.

Timi Frank further called on Nigerians to rally massive support for Nigeria celebrities.

As seen on Timi Frank’s verified twitter handle @RealTimiFrank, DSS harassment on; 

@OfficialWaje is the height of impunity from Gen Buhari’s Govt. This is a plot to intimidate Celebrities and Nigerians from speaking the truth.
@MBuhari insensitivity must stop! Nigerians must rally support for our celebrities.
