My attackers were sponsored, says Charly Boy

Charly Boy

Maverrick singer and social crusader, Charles Oputa (a.k.a. Charly boy), yesterday said that the attack on him and others at Wuse Market was sponsored.He said: “I don’t think we will stop this protest soon because this is a fight for the Nigeria of our dreams. And I keep saying that until the youths wake up from their sleep, nothing is ever going to change. So, till they decide whether they want a country or they want to go down with the country because we are definitely going down if we don’t do something quick and fast.“I want the government to be more responsible. I want the government to be more sensitive to the people it claims to serve.”

Meanwhile, the Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, as well as a human rights group, Centre For Leadership Trust and Moral Rectitude, has condemned the attack.While Fayose described it as the height of dictatorship and demonstration of intolerance, the group said it was an unwarranted display of brute force by the Nigeria Police against Oputa and members of his group.

In a statement by Special Assistant to the Governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said that any attempt to silence Nigerians, especially those opposed to the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government, would fail.

The group in a statement signed by its Director-General, Mr. Innocent Ezeugo, called on Nigerians to rise up against this clampdown on them by the police, insisting that the hottest places of hell are reserved for those who in time of great moral crisis maintain their neutrality.
