DSS interogates, Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage Over Alleged Political Utterances Against President Buhari's Government

Details have emerged on how Nigerian music producer, Michael Ajereh widely referred to as Don Jazzy, and Tiwatope Savage popularly referred to as Tiwa Savage, were invited by the Department of State Serviced for questioning over alleged political utterances against the administration of President Muhamamdu Buhari. 

In recent months, following a pointy rise in sexual abuse cases across Nigeria especially against women, Tiwa Savage began a movement referred to as “WeAreTired” in protest of the situation.

Through the movement, the musician called on Buhari's administration to take action to stem the tide of rape within the country. 

According to findings by SaharaRepoters, this in addition to several posts on social media calling on the govt to measure up to its responsibilities to Nigerians earned Tiwa Savage an invitation by the DSS. 

Together with Don Jazzy, Savage was invited to the DSS office in Lagos two weeks ago during which they were warned to use caution with their posts on the social media. 

Shortly after that episode, the 2 celebrities together with colleagues Yemi Alade and Waje were summoned by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu, who while sharing efforts they were making to tackle rape and other problems within the state and country, warned the musicians to steer afar from political comments so as to not incur the wrath of the President Buhari administration.

A member of Tiwa Savage's management team, who confirmed the event to SaharaRepoters, said that the celebrated female artiste won't stop speaking for Nigerians no matter any move by governnent.

But as if to verify the subtle warning from governnent, Don Jazzy and Tiwa Savage both appear to have toned down their social media posts in recent days after the meeting with the DSS and police in Lagos.

For example, Don Jazzy, who is understood to actively engage his numerous followers on social media, last posted anything on Twitter more than 22 hours while Tiwa never continued with her hashtag after the meeting with DSS Director at their Shangisha, Lagos office.

Apart from the 2 celebrities, the DSS has also invited a former deputy governor of the central bank of Nigeria, Obadiah Mailafia, over his comments on the operations of Boko Haram within the Northern part of Nigeria.

He was invited twice for questioning by the DSS and also invited for interrogation by the police in Abuja, which he turned down by seeking a relief in court.
