Singer, Seun Kuti Reacts After Lagos Government Threatened To Close Down Afrika Shrine Over #EndSARS

Nigerian musician and Fela Kuti’s son, Seun Kuti has reacted after the Lagos state government threatened to shut down the Afrika Shrine over the #EndSARS movement meeting on the premises.

It was gathered that the singer planned to host a mass meeting at the venue which is focused on the government and its oppression.

However, the commissioner of Police sent him a letter, threatening to shutdown Afrika Shrine if he holds the meeting.

Reacting to this, Seun Kuti noted that the government may have succeeded in shutting down the gathering but the launch of his resistance group ‘The Movement of The People’ will still hold.

Sharing screenshots of the letter via Instagram, he wrote;

”So yesterday the government called my eldest sister @yeniakuti and threatened to close the shrine if I hold my event there tmr and also sent a letter to back it up.

“I respect my families decision not to hold the event as is but I will still go ahead with all the other organizations to launch THE MOVEMENT OF THE PEOPLE tomorrow and start our political resistance to the tyranny of this oppressive regime.

“This is a meeting, just a meeting of organizations and they are basically banning the right of association. Why are they afraid of the people organising?

“What is democratic about this act? The last time we tried to launch the government quickly called curfew and this time they have used threat but you can’t stop the will of the people. #getthesax #liberationgeneration #wenodoagain #endoppression.”
