Nigerian activist, Seun Kuti has recounted an uncomplimentary story about the iconic M.K.O Abiola and his wife as the Afenifere Yoruba ethnic group advocates for a presidential entitlement for the late politician and philanthropist.
In the hint of demands to make June 12, Nigeria’s true democracy day, Seun Kuti, one of the sons of Afrobeat legend, late Fela Anikulapo shared a background story on the acclaimed winner of the June 12 election and his wife, late Simbiat Abiola.
It will be recalled that Fela in one of his songs titled “International Thief Thief” (ITT) accused M.K.O Abiola, former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, Muritala Muhammed and others of conniving with an international telecommunication company to embezzle money.

“Give me shít; I give u shít!!:
A certain Simbiat Abiola reported to the Police that FELA ANIKULAPO-KUTI, and his robbery gang stole her red car(make and model unknown) at gun point. Her husband, then a dear friend of IBB and Obasanjo took up the case to the Commissioner. Now this was a blatant lie against a man who never stole a penny in his life unlike them oooo. Fela was promptly arrested and thrown in jail. Abiola and the Police had tortured and bribed three ex convicts as prosecution witnesses to confirm Fela as the leader of their gang.
“This is a super true story ooo. Don’t be surprised, lemme continue. Fela was charged to court and 2 witnesses had confirmed Felas as their leader and the penalty under military was death! The 3rd witness though, was an ex kalakutian who Fela exiled because he stole. The young man’s conscience couldn’t take it and right there and then in court he spoke the truth that saved Fela lives. Now Fela was acquitted but Abiola and his wife were never tried for attempted murder. This was an attempt at Felas life through his well planned CIA gimmick.
“Now to revenge, Fela rents a truck full of poo and goes to Abiola’s house at midnight, the rest is history. Give me poo, I give u poo has been on repeat all morning. June 12 day my gluteus Maximus”
