Tuface Idibia

Top Nigerian singer-songwriter, Innocent Ujah Idibia, better known by his stage name Tuface Idibia, or 2Baba,has denied being arrested and detained by the Directorate of State Services (DSS) over his earlier planned anti-government protests in Lagos and Abuja.

In a tweet on Monday, the musician expressed gratitude to those who had shown concern over the purported arrest.

“Thanks for the concern, guys. I am fine and free,” he said.

“Reports about DSS arrest are not true. We are still compiling responses for the leadership.

“State your opinion on the social media with the #IStandWithNigeria. Peace! One luv always!!!”

The protest which was initially slated for Monday was cancelled on Sunday.

The cancellation did not stop other groups from carrying on with the protest, but it attracted a lean turnout both at the National Stadium in Lagos and Unity Fountain, Abuja.

The popular musician cancelled the protest on Sunday, citing “security concerns and public safety consideration.”

However, some groups vowed to go ahead with the protest despite the cancellation by its initiator.
