Assault: Thank God Seun Kuti’s body didn’t end up in the lagoon — Kogi CP, Hakeem Yusuf
The Kogi State Commissioner of Police, Akeem Yusuf, has insinuated that singer, Seun Kuti’s body could have ended up in the lagoon for assaulting a police officer on Third Mainland Bridge.
The police chief, who goes by the Facebook moniker, Kimo Akeem, made the assertion recently while replying to a commentator who was supporting Kuti’s action.
Newsmediang reported that Seun Kuti was arrested and detained after he was captured slapping a uniformed police officer in a viral video.
Yusuf, in his reaction, said Nigerians should thank God that the Grammy-nominated afrobeat artiste’s body was not being searched for in the lagoon.
He wrote, “Come and slap police also. Thank God, his [Seun Kuti’s] body was not being looked for in the third mainland bridge waters.”
His comment earned backlash as many claimed it was a testament to the several extrajudicial killings by security agencies.
