It was reported this morning that Seun Kuti, the last surviving son of Fela Kuti, surrendered to the Lagos State Police Command to explain the events leading up to his assault of a police officer. However, as soon as he arrived, he was arrested and paraded on social media.
Twitter user "Mr Humphrey" responded to Seun Kuti's detention by claiming the musician would not face consequences for his actions because he is not a member of the most reviled ethnic group in Nigeria. Humphrey warned Nigerians not to believe the media's parade of achievements.
He declared, "This act is all you have. What should we do after sending him? Don't let yourself be fooled by Prince's speculative post, Nigerians. Nothing will happen after this since, as I indicated earlier, he is not from the most hateful group.
CSP Olumuyiwa Prince Adejobi, the Force Public Relations Officer for the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) based in Abuja, Nigeria, responded that Mr. Humphrey sounded like a machine.
Can you just reread what you posted?" he said. And once more? You have the robotic voice of a well-programmed machine. Orisisrisi"
