Afrika Shrine Cordoned Off By Security Operatives.

By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Seun Kuti, the youngest son of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, disclosed to journalists at a press briefing on Tuesday that the Afrika Shrine had been surrounded by police operatives.

This comes in the wake Seun’s earlier disclosure that the government had threatened to close down the shrine located in the Ikeja area of Lagos State, due to plans to hold an event tagged Mass Meeting #EndSARS Movement, Lessons and Tasks, at the shrine on Tuesday.

According to Seun the government had contacted his eldest sister Yeni Kuti, threatening to shut down the shrine if the event was held, with a letter backing up the threat, adding, however, that despite abiding by his family’s decision not to hold the event any longer, he was proceeding with plans to launch The Movement Of The People and start a political resistance against the tyranny of “this oppressive regime”.

Seun accused the government of attempting to muzzle the rights to free association, asking why the government was afraid of people organizing, adding that nobody could stop the will of the people.
