    Seun Kuti in an Instagram Live spoke concerning the current #EndSars 5-for-5 demands, calling it “too weak”.

    He also explained why he feels the demands are not enough. He said that Police Officers are grown adults who should fight for their rights if they are not satisfied with their salary.

    “It is not the duty of Nigerians to fight for police to have better salary. If police don’t like their salary and welfare, let them strike and protest. It’s like we’re fighting for police to live a better life,” he said.

    He also noted that the increment of Police Salary isn’t the solution to the problem.

    “Increasing police salary will not stop police corruption. If money dey stop corruption, why our politicians still dey thief?”

    Seun went on to say that it appears the average Nigerian is fighting for the issue that affects them, which is police brutality because they want to freely drive their Benz without being harassed but they do not seem to care about the problems that affect poorer Nigerians.

    SARS is not our only problem“, he affirmed, adding that NURTW boys collect money from market women, okada riders, and bus drivers every day and no one is fighting for them.

    The singer said a call to end the harassment poor Nigerians face from these NURTW boys who extort money from them needs to be included in the list of demands, instead of advocating for an increase in police salary.

    “Everybody is being extorted at every level in this country every day,” and which he concluded that #5for5 is “useless demands” and that no one can drag him to the current agitation because the demands are not serious enough.
