The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore has reacted the altercation between a police officer and Afrobeat star, Seun Kuti.
KanyiDaily had published a viral video showing the moment Seun Kuti assaulted and slapped a police officer on Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.
The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Baba has ordered the arrest of the musician and also directed that a probe be carried out to ascertain the facts of the case.
In his reaction, Kuti claimed the policeman attempted to kill him and his family members. He said the offier has apologized and he has forgiven him.
Taking to his Twitter page, Omoyele Sowore alleged that some people want Kuti to be “executed” because he did not support Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi in the election.
He tweeted: “There is nothing wrong if you admit that you want @realseunkuti summarily executed because he did not support @peterobi for President, during the 2023 presidential election. even the @PoliceNG agreed to investigate what led to the altercation between @policeng & @realseunkuti on 3rd Mainland bridge earlier today.
“@realseunkuti also accepted to cooperate with investigators, but because he was against @peterobi you want him executed summarily.

KanyiDaily recalls that before the presidential election, Peter Okoye of the music group, Psquare, had clashed with Seun Kuti, for criticizing Peter Obi.
