We Looking Forward To Prompt Prosecution Of Seun Kuti, PSC Chairman, Arase Says



Seun Kuti

The Chairman Police Service Commission  (PSC), Dr. Solomon Arase, has said the commission is looking forward to the prompt prosecution of Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti.

He made the comment in a statement issued by PSC’s spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani in reaction to a viral video in which Kuti was spotted slapping a policeman standing by a police van.

According to Arase, Kuti’s prompt prosecution will act as a deterrent to others.

He also commended the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba Alkali for ordering the arrest of Kuti.

Arase, said no matter the offence, nobody, including Kuti, had the right to assault a policeman on official duty.

He frowned at the effrontery of Kuti to have slapped the policeman, insisting that Nigeria is not a Hobbesian state where might is right.

“We must, as civilized people, explore established channels of complaints against alleged infractions by law enforcement officials rather than this uncouth behaviour of assaulting the country’s symbol of authority.

Kuti known to be quiet controversial was repeatedly heard in the viral video asking the policeman “You dey mad? meaning are you insane in vernacular, even as he slapped him.
