Twitter abuzz over alleged attack on Ruggedman in London
Nigerians on Twitter have expressed their views over how rapper, Ruggedman was allegedly attacked at a London restaurant by four men.
The ‘Baraje’ crooner who was very vocal in the #EndSARS campaign, shared a video, showing a fight at a restaurant.
“Being attacked by four misguided boys will not deter me from fighting for the youths, even though they blindly fight me. #shoutout #londonmetpolic @london_police_department for prompt action. The restaurant owner was just asking if everyone had paid for their food”, he wrote.
Ever since the entertainer shared the video and a photo with an officer from the London Metropolitan Police, the issue became a trending subject matter on Twitter, with many Nigerians condemning the attack.
See reactions below
From my perspective:
1. Ruggedman uploaded the video on his IG by himself🤨
2. According to that video, no matter what you wouldn’t be looking unscathed even if you’re Jackie Chan
3. How will they beat someone and the next hour you’re in your bed saying you’re alright??😫

Just seeing the video of Ruggedman getting beat up.
Let me tell you all this for free, as youths, until we start promoting and giving attention to the truth, justice and hard work, this country will never move forward. It’s not a curse, just facts.
