The internet had since yesterday been awashed with the video of how Seun, son of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti assaulted a police officer.
The action of the Afrobeat singer has attracted condemnation from all quarters. The Inspector General of the Police has also order his arrest over the infamous act.
Respectable rights lawyer, Dr. Kayode Ajulo, has also lend his voice to the much talked about issue, expressing reservation for the act put up by the controversial musician. Equally, Ajulo highlighted necessary steps Seun Kuti needs to take, in order to be free from the shackles of his condemnable act, and what he should do to ensure his actions doesn’t negate what is expected of him by the society, going forward.
Below is the text as made by Dr. Kayode Ajulo
If we sincerely love Seun Kuti, we will agree he needs the following;
i. He needs to seek psychological help on anger management and other related issues.
ii. Ensure he shows remorse and tender unreserved apology to the Nigeria Police Force, the victim and the entire people of Nigeria.
iii. He should seek proper legal advice on what he understands as human rights, and protect his interest in the circumstance.
Watching Seun’s clip is like watching what brought up #Endsars movement playing in reverse mode.
We cannot claim to be the victim and still appear to be the villain at the same time.
We must also enjoin the Nigeria Police to be civil in this regard to not take the law into their own hands by molesting Seun Kuti.
Above all we should always law to take its course and heaven won’t fall.
