He then asked what Nigeria is doing about cults in the country.

“Is this when we decide to rise up against cults all over this country or we just wanna do the usual,” the singer asked.

Seun Kuti’s agitation against cultism came following demise of 12-year-old student of Dowen college identified as Sylvester Oromoni who was allegedly tortured by his senior schoolmates over his refusal to join their cult group.

The young lad was confirmed dead on Tuesday, November 30.

Dowen College has since been shut down by the Lagos State government.
