According to gathered reports, attributes have ensued on how Nigerian music producer, Michael Ajereh popularly often called Don Jazzy, and Tiwatope Savage widely referred to as Tiwa Savage, had been invited and questioned by the Department of State Serviced over claimed political assertions in opposition to the government Muhamamdu Buhari, Nigeria President.
Recently, regards a pointy increase in sexual assault cases throughout Nigeria particularly towards girls, the Music Star Tiwa Savage commenced a movement generally known as “WeAreTired” in the revolt of the state of affairs.
During the cause of the protest, Savage urged Buhari’s leadership to take an effort to curb the wave of rape within the nation.
This along with a number of columns on social media urging the federal government to rise to responsibilities to Nigerians triggering Tiwa Savage’s invite by the DSS, SaharaReporters learned.
Both Don Jazzy and Savage were invited for questioning at the DSS office in Lagos two weeks in the past during which they were cautioned to watch out with their social media posts.
In a separate report involving the dual celebrities, two other musicians Yemi Alade and Waje were reportedly arraign by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu, concerning sharing efforts they had been making to deal with rape and different issues within the state and nation, advised the musicians to keep away from political comments so as to not incur the anger of the President Buhari administration.
Confirming this to an electronic media company, Sahara Reporters, a member of Tiwa Savage’s management crew, stated that the famous female artiste won’t cease talking for Nigerians no matter any move by the government.
Nevertheless, respect to the subtle warning from the government, Don Jazzy, and Tiwa Savage each seem to have soft-pedaled their social media posts in recent days after the meeting with the DSS and police in Lagos.
For instance, Don Jazzy, who is thought to vigorously interact with his quite a few followers on social media, last posted something on Twitter for more than 22 hours whereas Tiwa by no means proceeded with her hashtag campaign after the meeting with DSS Director at their Shangisha, Lagos office.
Recall, in the same vein that DSS has also queried Mr. Obadiah Mailafia, the former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, over his comments on the activities of Boko Haram insurgents within the Northern part of Nigeria.
While responding to questions on a radio programme, Mailafia had acknowledged a serving governor in the North was the commander of Boko Haram.
He was further called over twice for questioning by the DSS, and police for interrogation in Abuja, which he declined by seeking relief in court.
