Nigeria’s music prodigy, Innocent Idibia, alias Tuface, has denied that he was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS), and forced to cancel the national protest he planned for today (Monday).

Some people had claimed that the music icon, spoke under duress, when he announced the cancellation on Saturday, citing the likelihood of the event being hijacked by those, who did not share the ideals of the protest, because he was under the custody of the DSS.

But in a post on his Facebook page, on Monday, the man popularly known as 2baba, said that he was not only a free man, but indeed fine.

His words: “Thanks for the concern guys. I’m fine and free. Reports about DSS arrest are not true.

“We are still compiling your responses for the leadership. State your opinion on social media with the hastag #IStandWithNigeria. Peace! One luv.”

The post came on the heels of a nationwide apology by the 2face Foundation, the platform under which he had intended to hold the protest, begging Nigerians, who must have felt betrayed by the development to show understanding.

The foundation, said in a statement on Sunday: “On behalf of Innocent “2Baba” Idibia, we would like to apologize to the fans, colleagues and everyday Nigerians who feel let down by the cancellation of this protest. 2Baba’s aim was to lend his voice to make the government aware of the growing discontent due to the wildly escalating cost of living for Nigerians in Nigeria among other issues.

“Arguably one of the country’s most influential musicians, he saw it fit to use his considerable platform; at the core of which are Nigerians, to amplify their voice. This is why he chose to march for the cause, and why he was so honoured when his industry colleagues pledged their support.”

“The risk of hijack by various political and sundry interests intent on using the platform to drive agendas that we as The 2face Foundation are not aligned with and therefore exposing protesters to high levels of danger is the main reason why 2baba regretfully had to withdraw himself from the march. He has refused to inadvertently present a platform for mischief makers to exploit.

“2baba would like to express his great regret over these circumstances to everyone who feels disappointed. However, he hopes they will agree that as he said in the video announcing the development; ‘no protest is worthy he blood of any Nigerian’.”
