Nigerian musician and the youngest son of late Fela Kuti, Seun Kuti has stated that Nigeria as a country has returned to Abacha days. He also condemned the Lagos State Government over threat to close down his family’s entertainment center, The New Afrika Shrine because his plan to hold a meeting where lessons learnt during the #EndSARS protest will be discussed.
In an interview on Thursday, the musician described the threat by the state government to shut down the center as tyrannical. Seun Kuti said that he wanted to hold a meeting at the Afrika Shrine to discuss the lesson learned during the #EndSARS protest and not embark or organise a protest.
Seun stated that the country is back to the Abacha days now where people cannot even associate and gather and not expect any kind of oppression from the government. The musician also berated the federal government for clamping down on #EndSARS protesters and denying the killings of protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate on October 20, 2020.
Seun also used the opportunity to announce the revival of his father’s political party, the Movement of the People (MOP), established in opposition to the country’s elites.
