As many as 30 armed policemen have reportedly stormed Nigerian musician, Seun Kuti’s house.
The policemen on Friday morning invaded popular singer and EndSARS activist, Seun Kuti’s residence, arresting a member of his family for yet-to-be-ascertained reasons.
SaharaReporters reports that the policemen stormed the residence during a desperate plan to devour the musician, but they met his absence, as he was on a routine morning radio show.
According to a gaggle, Movement of the People, who explained how the police harassment transpired, the arrest and harassment of Seun Kuti’s relations were uncalled for.
The MOP Media Centre said, “Seun Kuti is one among the strategy figures of the #EndSARS Movement who remains vocal despite mounting attacks and intimidation from the oppressive Nigerian government. he’s one among the leaders of the developing socialist-oriented political organization of the toiling masses and youth, Movement of the People.
“This plan to arrest Seun Kuti isn’t surprising, because it falls within the growing pattern of attacks and repression on all voices of mass and youth opposition to the hellish and oppressive situation within the country.
“The Nigerian ruling elites are now wanting to silence all voices speaking the reality to the masses and calling on the masses to urge organized politically and boot the oppressors and their rotten system out of power.”
The MOP added that the police were nowhere to be found in defending the people against kidnappers, robbers, bandits, and therefore the Boko Haram terrorists but they’re willing tools of the oppressive ruling elite.
“They look the opposite way when the rich oppressors close our streets due to their parties and social engagements. The vested agenda of police lately is to attack and kill peaceful protesters, striking workers, or stop meetings where the state of the state is to be discussed.
“What is definite is that this crude plan to silence Seun Kuti has failed already and would only help accelerate the building of the mass revolutionary political organization of the toiling masses and youth,” it added.
