Nigerian rapper and activist Falz has shared his thoughts following the arrest of Seun Kuti, who had slapped a policeman on the Third Mainland Bridge.
In a heartfelt note on his Instagram page, Falz addressed the incident while also raising broader concerns about the ongoing issues within the Nigeria Police Force.
Falz acknowledged that it is unequivocally wrong to physically assault a policeman, clarifying his stance for those seeking mischief.
However, he drew attention to a series of videos, which he shared, that showcase recurring instances of police misconduct and abuse of power.
Falz emphasized that such cases are not isolated incidents, but rather a prevalent problem that is often left unaddressed.
Falz pointed out that these issues persist both before and after the ENDSARS movement, highlighting the urgent need to confront the root causes of these problems, specifically focusing on the Nigeria Police Force.
While awaiting confirmation regarding the circumstances leading to Seun Kuti’s reaction, Falz noted that encountering a drunk police officer is not uncommon in Nigeria.
