Seun Kuti, an afrobeat musician, has made news when a video of him shoving and slapping a police officer on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos surfaced.
Social media users have been discussing the event and raising concerns about the musician’s behaviour as well as the circumstances that led to the altercation.
Although the incident between Kuti and the police officer is not obvious from the video, it shows the cop being composed throughout the encounter.
The individual who posted the footage on social media claims that the event happened on May 13.
Since the video became viral, many people have commented on the situation.
Kuti’s actions towards the police officer have drawn criticism from certain social media users who claim that violence is never the answer to a problem.
Others, however, have backed the artist, arguing that Kuti was only defending his rights and that the police frequently use excessive force when dealing with citizens.
More information on the incident involving Kuti and the police officer is now being investigated, and more information is anticipated to surface soon.
