EndSARS: There must be justice before peace, Seun Kuti rejects Sanwo-Olu’s invitation for walk



Seun Anikulapo-Kuti, son of Afro-beat legend, Fela, has rejected the invite by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to a peace walk for “the healing of Lagos” in December.


The activist and singer insisted that the governor must ensure justice is served for victims of police brutality before peace walk.


“I wants peace after justice,” he said on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’ programme.


“I don’t need to walk next to the governor before there is peace in Lagos; there has been peace in Lagos before many years and nobody have to walk anywhere for it.


“If there is justice, then we can discuss peace. In fact, there will be no need to walk for peace because justice itself is the walk of peace. The governor should walk the walk he is talking about by giving us justice.”


The governor in a speech on Tuesday on the Lekki shootings of October 20, 2020, had said, “In December, I will be leading A WALK FOR PEACE to herald the healing of our land. Let me use this occasion to extend an open invitation to our youths, members of the diplomatic corps, civil society groups, students and the media as well as other stakeholders to join me.”


Specifically, the governor invited Folarin Falana aka Falz, Debo Adebayo aka Mr Marcaroni, Dele Farotimi, Temitope Majekodunmi, Segun Awosanya (Segalink), Adedotun (Just Detoun), Seun Kuti; Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu; and Commander of Rapid Response Squad CSP Yinka Egbeyemi and others to join him in the “historic march for our dear Lagos.”


Falz and Mr Macaroni, amongst others have also rejected the governor’s invite.


Sanwo-Olu also said his government would release its White Paper on the report submitted by the EndSARS Judicial Panel of Inquiry on November 15, 2021.
