TUFACE IDIBIA AND TWO SOUTH-SOUTH GOVERNORS IN CRISIS OVER PROTEST FUNDS?
From a very reliable source, two(2) notorious South-South governors are currently in serious disagreement with Nigerian artist Tuface Idibia, over the proposed, but cancelled protest.The information reveals that one of the governors, who had promised to be part of the protest, is threatening that funds already released for the protest, to the organizers must be refunded in full.
On further investigation, it has been gathered that over N800m naira was raised by the two(2) South-South governors to sponsor the aborted protest.
A close source of one of the governor’s, lamented that this is the second time the governor has lost several millions of naira, sponsoring protests that has always failed and that he had vowed that this one must be refunded or heads will roll!! Hence, the governors are now in serious crisis, with the leaders and organizers of the said protest, as they are demanding for the refund of their funds, or hold the protest by all means.
On the other hand, Tuface has openly stated that, he cancelled the protest because, he has credible and reliable information that the protest will be hijacked by hoodlums. He further stated that, most of those behind the plan to hijack his proposed ‘peaceful protest’ and turn it into a violent protests, are politicians, whose interests are different from that of the organizers of the protest.
He couldn’t comprehend why several touts, militants and cultists of Rivers and Ekiti State, developed so much interest in the protest and had been threatening him through several phone calls, since he announced the cancellation of the protest.
However, he further stated that he is not indebted to anybody, as a result of the cancelled protest
