Seun Kuti slap: Police now know what it feels like to be brutalised – Mr Macaroni

Nigerian comedian and activist, Debo Adedayo, known by his stage name, Mr Macaroni has reacted to the arrest of Afrobeats star, Seun Kuti for slapping a policeman.

Macaroni condemned the assault on the officer, in a post on his Twitter page, but noted that the Nigeria police were now aware of how it feels to be assaulted and oppressed.

He, however, called for Seun Kuti’s rights to be respected in their quest to seek justice.

He said; “I love how the Nigeria Police is quickly seeking justice for one of theirs who was assaulted. I hope such speed is also applied when Citizens are being harassed and brutalized by the Nigeria Police.

“While I totally condemn assault on Police officers, I also condemn any form of maltreatment against Seun Kuti.

“As the police attempt to fight for the rights of one of theirs, Seun Kuti’s rights must also be respected. The Law should be allowed to take its course.

“I hope the Nigerian Police understand how the people also feel when they assault, brutalize, humiliate and oppress us. All we want is for things to be done rightly.

“Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. I hope the Police and the Citizens understand this.

“It should be Good against Evil. Not the Police Vs Citizens because we all are capable of both good and evil. If we want a better society, we must encourage good and shun evil.

The Magistrate Court in Yaba granted Kuti bail on Tuesday and gave the police 48 hours to conclude investigations into the matter
