Popular skit maker, Adebowale “Debo” Adedayo alias Mr Macaroni has expressed his opinion on the arrest of Afrobeats singer, Seun Kuti by the Nigeria Police Force.
Taking to his verified Twitter account, Mr Macaroni indirectly criticized the Nigeria Police Force while commenting on Seun Kuti’s altercation with the police officer in Lagos.
Voicing his dissatisfaction with the police, Mr Macaroni pointed out the apparent disparity in how swiftly the police seek justice when one of their own is assaulted, compared to their actions when citizens are subjected to harassment by the police.
He also called for Seun Kuti’s rights to be respected in their quest to seek justice.
In his words:
“I love how the Nigerian 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 Nigerian 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.”
