“SEUN KUTI pulled out a gun over a street parking matter in Ikeja tonight, personally assaulted the car owners attending the party, used thugs to assault them and called them gluttons at a paid event...I saw it happen.”

Telling her side of the story, the journalist claimed that she left an event which was going on around the area at about 7pm and came out to find Kuti ranting about cars which were parked on the streets.

Ayetoto noted that Kuti’s gate was affected and another neighbour in the area could not gain access into his house.

Narrating further, the journalist claimed that there was a heated exchange between Kuti and another man who blocked access with his vehicle.

Ayetoto claimed that this was followed by some of the singer's teammates beating up the man with Kuti personally landing him a blow as well.

"Next thing: Some three guys left Kuti's side and rushed the guy with slaps and blows, while Kuti also landed him a heavy strike on his head amid screaming. This guy retreated, almost crying. He moved his car. But it wasn't enough," her tweet read.

Ayetoto in her tweets said things went out of hand after the singer allegedly went into his compound and returned with a gun. According to her, he attempted to cork it but changed his mind afterwards.

She said:

"This time around Kuti went into his compound and brought out a SHORT BLACK GUN! He was attempting to cork it but paused again... I called my friend that we needed to leave immediately."

Rounding up her narration, the journalist expressed shock at the alleged display of the singer and made a reference to his contributions during the protest against police brutality.

"I'm shocked that Kuti will rather make his point with a gun than engage the organisers...seeing him in the movie 'Citation' & how he found his voice during #EndSarsProtests reinforces the feeling that things aren't what they seem. KUTI was a thug to behold."

Meanwhile, reported that Seun Kuti reacted to allegations levelled against him by journalist Temitato Ayetoto. Kuti shared a lengthy video on Instagram in which he narrated his side of the story.

Although Kuti did not categorically say that he pulled out a gun, he did confirm that there were gunshots in the area.
