The Nigeria Police have restricted movement in and out of the Afrika Shrine to prevent an #EndSARS meeting from taking place there.
Seun, one of the sons of legendary Afro Beats maestro, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, had sent out flyers days before, announcing a mass meeting tagged #EndSARS Movement: Lessons and Tasks, and scheduled to hold today.
However the police later wrote to the Anikulapo family, demanding that the meeting must not hold at the shrine, a relaxation spot.

Seun had taken to social media to share snapshots of a letter the Nigeria Police Force, Alausa Division sent to the New Afrika Shrine dated November 16, 2020.
Part of the letter read, “You are hereby warned to suspend such gathering as any infraction that may emerge from this gathering will be tagged a deliberate action to sabotage the transition and restoration of the peace in Lagos State by the Lagos State Government and the Nigeria Police Force.”
On Tuesday morning, mobile policemen proceeded to mounted strategic locations around the shrine, and parked their vans right in front of the relaxation spot.

In a reacting to the development, Seun said took to his instagram page to express himself. He wrote, “So yesterday the government called my eldest sister @yeniakuti and threatened to close the shrine if I hold my event there tomorrow and also sent a letter to back it up.
I respect my families decision not to hold the event as it is but I will still go ahead with all the other organizations to launch THE MOVEMENT OF THE PEOPLE tomorrow and start our political resistance to the tyranny of this oppressive regime.
“Slide left and you will see the flyer. This is a meeting, just a meeting of organizations and they are basically banning the right of association. Why are they afraid of the people organising? What is democratic about this act? The last time we tried to launch the government quickly called curfew and this time they have used threat but you can’t stop the will of the people. #getthesax #liberationgeneration #wenodoagain #endoppression.”
