The Police Service Commission (PSC) on Sunday counseled the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, for ordering the arrest of Seun Kuti for attacking a police officer on responsibility. In a video that has gone viral, the Afrobeat musician sporting a crimson shirt and a white pair of trousers was seen slapping and pushing the policeman. While slapping the policeman, he repeatedly requested him: You dey mad? (are you insane?). In a assertion launched, the Chairman of the PSC, Solomon Arase, mentioned that irrespective of the offense, no person, together with Kuti, had the proper to assault a policeman on official responsibility. Arase frowned at the effrontery of Kuti to have slapped the policeman, insisting that Nigeria is just not a Hobbesian state the place may is true. We should, as civilized individuals discover established channels of complaints in opposition to alleged infractions by legislation enforcement officers relatively than this uncouth behaviour of assaulting the countrys image of authority. We look forward to the prompt prosecution of Kuti to act as a deterrent to others, Arase was quoted in the assertion issued by PSCs spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani. Ani added that Arase counseled the police officer for refusing to be provoked by the motion of his aggressor; a improvement, he mentioned would have been deadly.
