A video circulating on social media sees some school children being arrested by Amotekun operatives for allegedly behaving like rapper Naira Marley.
In the now viral-video, a lady, who is supposedly a teacher in the school could be heard labeling the boys as “criminals” as she also disclosed that they were apprehended in a bush.
Several Netizens have shared their sentiments regarding the video.
Reacting to the video, Human Rights activist, Sega Link admonished the act, stating that parents of the school children can take up legal actions.
Naira Marley mentioned that he would love to meet the kids. The rapper also called for the arrest of both the teachers as well as the security operatives.
In his words;
“Guys look what’s happening in stupid Nigeria.
How can you arrest school kids? This is child abuse. The teachers and this stupid uncles with guns need to get arrested.
I want to meet all these kids I owe them, please help me with the name of the school or link me up with any of my Marlian Kids. Thanks. I wanna see the witch behind the camera self. Wtf is amotekun self?? If they treat ur child like this, what would u do? Did u see the slap?? U calling someone child criminal?? Omoo I’m so angry give me school name pls. I need to go there”
See the reactions and video below:
This is absurd to say the least. Is Àmòtékùn a moral police?! What crime specifically warrants this illegal parade? “Behaving like Naira Marley” is not only ambiguous but subjective. The parents of the kids can sue them & their co-travelers abusing the terms of reference. https://t.co/W6ezecTKkk
