Mr. Macaroni has been a vocal critic of the Nigerian government and the police, particularly in the wake of the 2020 EndSARS protests, which were sparked by allegations of police brutality and extrajudicial killings.

During the endSARS protest, the comedian also spoke about receiving threats to his life.

He was among the protesters who were arrested and detained by the police during the end-SARS protests, and he has been vocal in calling for justice for those who were killed and injured during the protests.

Following the threat to his life, Mr. Macaroni has received an outpouring of support from fans and fellow activists, who have condemned the threat and called on the authorities to ensure his safety.

The Nigerian government has been criticized for its handling of these issues, with many accusing it of failing to protect the rights of its citizens and suppressing dissenting voices.

As the situation surrounding the elections continues to unfold, it is crucial that the government take concrete steps to protect the rights of its citizens, including activists and journalists who are working to hold the government accountable and bring about positive change.
