A viral video has surfaced showing a heated altercation between popular singer Seun Anikulapo Kuti and an unnamed man at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos. The man was allegedly attempting to board a flight out of Nigeria, when Seun intervened, claiming that the man had threatened his life online.
In the video, Seun can be heard saying, “No body is taking your passport. But you are not leaving this country. You have a case to answer. You can’t threaten my life and expect to fly out of the country.”
The man, who is reportedly an American citizen, can be heard responding, “I am an American. You just put your hands on me. Ok, you will found out.”
However, the video does not show Seun putting his hands on the man, as he claimed.
It is unclear what sparked the altercation, but it is believed to be related to a recent online threat made against Seun’s life. The man in the video is alleged to be behind the threat.
This is not the first time that Seun has been the target of online threats. In 2018, he was threatened with death after he spoke out against the Nigerian government. The threats were made online and came after Seun had been critical of the government’s handling of a number of issues, including corruption, human rights abuses, and the economy.
Seun said that he does not know who made the threats, but he believes that they were politically motivated. He has also said that he will not be silenced by the threats and that he will continue to speak out against injustice.
Meanwhile, the incident at the Lagos airport further reminders one of the dangers that face those who speak out against injustice. It is also a reminder of the importance of speaking out against threats and intimidation.
Many hope that the police will investigate this incident thoroughly and establish justice.
