Reacting, Seun Kuti berated the former Head of State for not extending a similar gesture to young Nigerians in prisons.

He spoke during an Instagram live session today.

He said: “Obasanjo did not write [a] letter on behalf of the many young Nigerians in prison, even for non-violent crimes but he wrote a letter for Ike Ekweremadu who wanted to harvest another person’s organ, destroy another person’s life for his daughter.”
