Reality star, Natacha Akide aka Tacha has called the prison break in Benin as sabotage by the government in order to disrupt the ongoing #EndSARs peaceful protest.
Tacha in a post on Twitter revealed that the government is trying to outsmart the youths by creating a problem that will shut down the peaceful protest against police brutality in the country.
“Those INMATES in Benin were ILLEGALLY released by authorities!! Just to SABOTAGE THE PEACEFUL PROTEST! we are not fools!!” She wrote.
In reaction to Tacha claim, Nigerians across the social media platform rushed in to support the call.
“I would like to state something, I grew up in Benin and I know that prison very well. I can boldly state that it’s almost impossible to break out from that prison, not to talk of a break out by protesters. The Edo State Govt will have to answer some questions” a Nigerian identified as Harry wrote on Twitter.
A user identified as Eddy also hinted that the government is trying everything possible to frustrate the protesters across the country.
“At first they hired thugs to kill people to blame it on those protesting peacefully in order to stop the protest and then force govt to use the military on us and it didn’t work. Now your govt went as high as releasing all inmates in prison. The govt is evil” he wrote.
