Seun Kuti accuses MKO Abiola of framing Fela for robbery

Seun Kuti, one of the sons of Afro-beats legend, Fela, has accused the late Nigerian politician, Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, aka MKO Abiola of framing his late father.

In a live Instagram post, Seun alleged that Fela was framed for robbery by the politician and his wife, Simbiat during the military regime of Muhammadu Buhari.

According to the singer, the powerful couple had accused Fela of stealing their Ferrari car at gunpoint but he was saved because he had a strong alibi.

Recall that during Buhari’s military era, his Deputy Head of State, Tunde Idiagbon, ensured the enforcement of laws that made armed robbery punishable by death.

Seun claimed, “Abiola and his wife, Simbiat, lied against Fela that he and his boys robbed her of her Ferrari at gunpoint under Idiagbon’s regime. This was Abiola and his wife’s plan to kill my dad because, under Idiagbon, armed robbery was punishable by death.

“Abiola and Simbiat wrote a statement at a police station that they saw Fela and his gang rob her at gunpoint. This led to Fela’s arrest which is punishable by death, but luckily for Fela, he was performing in Cameroon the very day Simbiat was lying about the theft. Fela escaped the case because he can’t be in two places at the same time; its either he’s on a stage in Cameroon or robbing in Lagos.

“Responding, Fela and my elder brother, Femi, took 12 buckets of faeces go and listen to his song – give me shit, I give you shit – then you will have a better understanding. They took it to Abiola’s house in the middle of the night and smeared his compound.

“The next day, the police visited my father’s house saying they came to investigate the shit-show in Abiola’s house the previous day. But Fela denied the act saying if given the opportunity, he would smear Abiola’s house with faeces.”
