Twitter users clashed on the platform after Banky W pleaded with security agencies to send in officers to enforce social distancing, while he and his team share food in a Lagos community.
The singer disclosed that the Police in Maroko has been incredibly supportive but they are stretched thin at the moment, as the 4 officers given to him and his team are not enough to do the job.
@jidesanwoolu @followlasg We just need a little assistance with officers to help us control the crowd and get them to understand social distancing while picking up the food. Please help with Police/Army/Lastma. 10-20 solid officers would be amazing. Pls RT folks
FYI the Police in Maroko has been incredibly supportive but they are stretched thin at the moment, so the 4 officers they are able to give us are not enough
Banky W also acknowleged that the Nigerian army has responded to his call via DM.
However Banky W’s tweet was trailed by mixed reactions as some stated that he shouldn’t have called in security operatives, while others defended him.
