Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo has alleged she is being threatened by the government for joining the #EndSARS Protest against police brutality and the now-defunct controversial Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
PaperTalk Nigeria reports that the mother of two, in a social media post on Wednesday, shared a picture of herself, saying she woke up to a message from a friend that her name was being mentioned in government circles.
“So this morning I wake up to a message from a friend in the media, he said someone sent this to him,” she wrote.
“Now, if you are close to Iyabo Ojo, advise her to calm down. Smart celebrities who have brains don’t take on governments ooo. I was somewhere and her name was mentioned.”
Iyabo had been a supporter of the #EndSARS campaign, joining the protest in Lagos.
She had on October 25 vowed never to support any politician from the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Iyabo’s vow came after President Muhammadu Buhari failed to address the Lekki shooting in his speech on October 21.
