Mr Macaroni Receive Death Threat From Tweeps

Popular Instagram Comedian and skit maker Debo Adedayo popularly known as Mr Macaroni has shared the death threats he received from a Twitter user. 

The 28-year-old comic actor has been outspoken about his dissatisfaction with the scheduled reopening of the Lekki Toll Gate scheduled for Friday. 

Mr Macaroni, a resident of the Lekki area of Lagos tweeted on Wednesday that, “We are live at the LCC and StakeHolders Meeting. The Lekki Estate Residents and Stakeholders Association Chairman has announced the decision of all Residents which is NO TO TOLLING!!!!!” 

In another tweet update on the meeting, he wrote, “All of us present here have spoken! And not one resident is in support of tolling. The timing is wrong, The people are going through a lot of hardship at the moment! We hope the Lagos state government will do the right thing here and suspend the resumption of Tolling. Nooooo!!!”
