How NSCDC officer threatens to shoot gospel singer, Yinka Ayefele

A member of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) is accused of assaulting well-known Nigerian gospel musician Yinka Ayefele in the state of Ekiti.

An officer who has not yet been named is alleged to have punched Ayefele in the lips during their fight.

Journalists in Ado Ekiti were informed by sources that the security guard also threatened to shoot the Ipoti Ekiti-born singer after the latter resisted his forced attempt to rob Ayefele of cash, Stechitegist Media reports.


One of the witnesses claimed, “He (Ayefele) came to entertain guests at a function in Iloro, Ekiti, where the incident took place. When Ayefele refused the officer’s attempt to collect money from his car, the cop hit the singer in the mouth.

“Before the help of his colleagues, the singer threatened to shoot him when he phoned his security detail to stop him.

This attack on the well-known music producer is unacceptable, and justice should be done in this case.

Mr. Ayefele verified the NSCDC officer had physically assaulted him when he was approached.

“I was leaving in my car after entertaining friends when the cop abruptly dipped his hand into my car to steal my money, but I opposed him and told him what he did was absolutely wrong,” stated the founder of Fresh FM Nigeria.


He punched me in the mouth in that way because I had cut lips and blood was pouring out. He was standing in front of my car corking his rifle and threatening to kill me when I contacted my security detail to hold him.

“At that time, his coworkers arrived, and I told them what he had done. They accused me of fighting them when I was attempting to protect him, saying that I am a prominent figure and I don’t want to offer them anything? I told him to wind down my car because I wouldn’t have stopped if I didn’t want to give him something. The neighborhood boys and others are now settled. I sobbed bitterly because they treated me in this way due to my physical limitations.

“They later produced the man who was supposed to have been beaten while attempting to steal money from the neighborhood youths. He had come to collect money for them. He claimed that he was assaulted and attacked with sharp items in an effort to frame me, but I have informed my attorney of this.
