Celebrities and police engage in verbal combat in Seun Kuti


Seun Kuti may have recently received criticism from many Nigerians for attacking a police officer, but that hasn't prevented his peers in the entertainment sector from rising up and mounting a defense of sorts on his behalf. You may remember that Seun Kuti was seen slapping a police officer in a video that went viral on social media over the weekend.

A number of them even shared recordings showing police abuse of bystanders while posing the question of why the police have not detained the officers in the videos.

Those famous people who have questioned the police's honesty.

Peter Okoye: On Wednesday, Peter Okoye of the P-square group engaged in an online disagreement with a senior police officer that resulted in back-and-forth exchanges between the two parties. In a series of tweets, Peter Okoye and the spokesman for the Lagos police, Benjamin Hundeyin, attempted to make a case for Seun Kuti or the assaulted policeman.

Peter Okoye questioned why election offenders, including police officers, were still allowed to roam free on the streets but Seun Kuti was quickly apprehended by the police.

In response, Hundeyin urged Peter to focus his efforts on the legal system, stating that the court was in charge of justice.

Mr. Macaroni: For his part, Macaroni denounced the assault on the police officer who was slapped by Kuti on his social media website. However, he believed that Seun's case would have helped the police understand what it was like to be beaten by security guards. Most importantly, he demanded that Seun be handled with compassion.

"I adore how the Nigeria Police is moving swiftly to bring the attacker to justice. I I hope that the Nigerian Police will act with the same promptness when harassing and abusing citizens. Both assaults on police officers and mistreatment of Seun Kuti are completely unacceptable to me. Added Macaroni.

Vector: Veteran rapper and talented musician Vector made an effort to defend Seun. He implied that the police officer who was slapped by Seun was inebriated in a brief but direct post on one of his official handles.

I might never be able to comprehend the behavior of a man who claims to have been traveling with his wife and only child when a police officer who was intoxicated was following them and nearly ran the vehicle they were all in off the road. True, I was raised by an officer, but not that sort; You won't ever get the opportunity to treat him badly, let alone raise your hand. Never. Inquire about Ogunmefun. Anyhow, 48 hours is not an eternity. @bigbirdkuti When you come, I wait for the yarns. posted Vector.

Falz: Falz, who is recovering from recent leg surgery, decided to shoot at the police before he was fully recovered.Falz questioned, like Mr. Macaroni, whether the police would use the same force used against Seun to punish negligent police officers while denouncing Seun for assaulting a police officer. He also made a suggestion that the hit police officer was intoxicated.

"No one can argue that hitting a police officer is wrong. for nothing Read the first phrase again, seekers. These other movies (of police abusing civilians) represent the opposite end of the spectrum, though.There hasn't been a first, second, third, fourth, fifth, or sixth instance before. True noted.

Apart from Peter Okoye, who was hired by the police, they didn't respond to Falz, Mr. Macaroni, or Vector for their comments.
