Nigerian afrobeat artiste, Seun Kuti is displeased with former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, over his letter to the United Kingdom court that found former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and his wife guilty of organ trafficking.
The former president had urged with the UK court to temper justice with mercy over the conviction of former Deputy Senate President Senator Ike Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, in a letter dated April 3 and sent to The Chief Clerk, the Central Criminal Court, Old Bailey, London.
Seun Kuti responded by chastising the former head of state for not making a comparable gesture for young Nigerians imprisoned.
He spoke during an Instagram live session on Thursday.
He said: “Obasanjo did not write [a] letter on behalf of the many young Nigerians in prison, even for non-violent crimes but he wrote a letter for Ike Ekweremadu who wanted to harvest another person’s organ, destroy another person’s life for his daughter.”
