Innocent ‘2face’ Idibia has explained why he was not physically present at today’s protests held in Abuja and Lagos state.

2face had on Saturday night announced the cancellation of the Feb. 6 planned protest for security reasons. This news was greeted with mixed reactions.

In a phone interview with Channels Television on Monday, he insisted that he is still in support of the rally but had only backed out for security reasons.

He is quoted to have said, “I don’t have the sole franchise to protest so I’m still in support of them, I think its within their rights.

“I can’t tell anybody not to stand for what they believe in. For me, there were a whole lot of things I put into consideration. I noticed a whole lot of people were trying to hijack the process.

“I only decided to back out of the physical protest due to security reasons but it’s not as if I’m not still standing by the things I said or the things I believe about governance in Nigeria for a long time now.

“I want to make it clear, I was not arrested by the DSS, I am free, I am good, nobody intimated me, nobody harassed me, nobody paid me to start it in the first place and nobody paid me to stop it.
