The African Action Congress presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, has cautioned the Nigeria Police Force not to engage in extra-judicial activities as the Afrobeat maestro, Seun Kuti agrees to cooperate with the force.
The AAC presidential contender issued the note of warning to the force via his Twitter handle recently.
His cautionary message came on the premise of the directive issued by the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, to arrest and prosecute Seun Kuti.
The musician was said to have assaulted an officer.
Sowore tweeted: “The @PoliceNG today declared wanted @seunkuti a scion of late Afrobeat king, #FelaAnikulapoKuti over an altercation between a police contingent that rammed into him and his family on the 3rd Mainland bridge in Lagos earlier today.
“I am aware that @seunkuti and his attorneys have agreed to help the @policeng in an effort to unravel circumstances that led to the altercations.
“It must be noted that while these conversations are ongoing for full cooperation with the police, officers of the @PoliceNG including the Inspector General of police must not engage in extra judicial action(s) like they are known for in settling disputes.
“Seun Kuti has agreed to cooperate fully with @policeng as soon as possible.”
