It was a brutal experience for top Nigerian rapper, Michael Ugochukwu Stephens, better known as Ruggedman, yesterday night in London.
The artiste was brutally attacked at a restaurant in London, England, allegedly for his perceived role in the arrest of a fellow music act, Afeez Fashola, otherwise known as Naira Marley.
Naira Marley was arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) last month after he openly supported internet crime.
It was speculated that Ruggedman instigated his arrest by the anti-graft agency and he has received threats for that.
After two weeks in prison, Naira Marley regained freedom as a result of the perfection of his bail requirements.
Last night in London, the artiste seen in a video being attacked by four men.
Ruggedman, who confirmed this via a post on his official Twitter page, said he will not stop speaking against internet fraud despite the attack.
“Being attacked by 4 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. #GodOverEverything,” he wrote.
Below is the video.
