Popular Nigerian singer, Peter Okoye of the PSquare music group, has pleaded with the Nigerian Police Force, on behalf of his colleague, Seun Kuti, following his encounter with an officer on Saturday, May 13.
The Inspector General of Police, Baba Alkali, ordered Seun’s arrest after a video of him assaulting a Police Officer surfaced online and the singer revealed that the altercation occurred because the policeman tried to hurt him and his family.
Reacting to the incident, Peter took to his Twitter page to appeal to the Police Force to accept his unreserved apology for the terrible outburst and to exercise mercy.
According to him, it was a regrettable situation and Seun’s family might have been in danger causing the singer to react instinctively. Peter Okoye wrote;
“Quite an unfortunate incident and from reports, it seems Seun’s family was in danger hence the altercation.
When you understand what happens when a man is put in a situation to protect his family from any form of danger, our emotions get the better of us.
I ask and plead that the #NigerianPoliceForce accept our unreserved apologies for the unfortunate outburst and tamper justice with mercy.
