Thespian, Debo Adedayo, popularly known as Mr Macaroni has rejected the invitation to a peace walk by Lagos governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu. 

“I humbly decline the Invitation of Mr Governor. The Government themselves set up a panel. The panel has made recommendations.

“I believe that genuine peacemaking will begin by first implementing the recommendations of the panel. Then we can begin to trust the government,” Mr Macaroni tweeted Tuesday.

Mr Sanwo-Olu addressed the state on Tuesday regarding the judicial panel of enquiry and the release of the white paper he had promised more than two weeks ago.

During his address, Mr Sanwo-olu invited Mr Macaroni, Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana, Seun Kuti, Dele Farotimi amongst others to “a walk of peace” sometime next month. 

Other notable public figures such as Omoyele Sowore have rejected the walk, saying justice must begin with the implementation of the panel report.
