Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti, has alleged that supporters of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 election, popularly known as ‘OBIdients’ were trying to set him up following his arrest by Nigerian Police.
The singer was caught on video slapping a policeman – a development that generated mixed reactions on social media.
Earlier this month, Seun was charged before a Sabo-Yaba Chief Magistrates Court in Lagos presided over by Adeola Olatubosun, for allegedly assaulting a police officer on Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.
Speaking in a recent video, the singer accused ‘Obidients’ of trying to set him up while he was detained in prison for eight days.
He alleged: “The Obidients still wanted to set me up inside the prison. Thank God for the Ancestral Secret Service (ASS).
“They don’t know that ASS is always working. Even inside the cell, they were there with me for 24 hours, watching and guarding to make sure mosquitos did not bite me.
“Have you ever seen or heard that someone went to jail and was not bitten by mosquitos? That was me.”
According to Ṣeun, fake journalists who couldn’t backup what they are saying wanted to set him up.
He noted that they know what is behind the nonesense they spew as facts. Even when they tell the truth, they are lying because the truth has an agenda. They are not saying it for people to know about it, they are saying it so that they can get something from somewhere that is sinister. Even
