“The policeman was drunk when he hit the car and provoked the singer” – Seun Kuti’s manager says

Just In: Police releases mugshots of Seun Kuti, after he showed up at Lagos Police Command today

Ayo Moses, the manager of popular Nigerian artist Seun Kuti, has described what transpired on the day he slapped a police officer on Lagos’ third mainland bridge.

Ayo, who talked exclusively to Potpourri over the phone, alleged that the police encouraged Seun Kuti to physically attack the cop.

In his words;

“On the said day, Seun was driving with his family on the third mainland bridge, when he was suddenly hit from behind, by a police truck being driven by an officer who was reportedly drunk. This act from the officer led Seun’s daughter into a sudden shock, as she was visibly shaken by the hit. So, this made Seun pursue the truck, double-crossed it and forced it to a stop. When the police officer got down from the truck, instead of apologizing, he was arguing with Seun, which provoked him to slap the officer.”

Ayo wanted Nigerians to understand that Seun was a human being and that anybody would have reacted in the same way if their family was in danger.

He cautioned police officers against thinking that just because they wear uniforms, they are untouchable.

“People should realize that men on uniforms also provoke civilians. Immunity is no excuse for impunity,” he added.

According to Ayo, Seun Kuti, who has been moved to the State CID officer in Yaba, would be represented in court by seasoned attorney and human rights campaigner Femi Falana.
