FIBAN threaten to sue KWAM1 over assault to member

Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria, on Friday, threatened to take legal redress against popular Fuji musician, Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, popularly called KWAM 1, for allegedly assaulting a member of the association, Wole Sorunke.

Sorunke aka MC Murphy, a radio presenter and event anchor, was allegedly attacked by KWAM 1 and his boys on Thursday night at the 60th birthday party of the Olu of Itori, Oba Abdulfatai Akamo, in the Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State.

It was reported that both Ayinde and Murphy were invited to the party to perform as musician and compere, respectively.

The musician allegedly disrupted the party, which had some prominent persons in attendance.

Addressing journalists in Abeokuta, Ogun State on Friday, FIBAN President, Desmond Nwachukwu, described the incident as unbecoming of the calibre of KWAM 1who holds the title of ‘Mayegun of Yorubaland’.

The FIBAN president added that the leadership of broadcasters association had reported the matter to security agencies and vowed to take legal means to ensure justice was served.

While sharing his ordeal, Sorunke said he was attacked shortly after he had taken his client to the stage to be eulogised by Ayinde.

According to the broadcaster, while on stage, Ayinde snubbed him alongside his client.

Sorunke said he was shocked by the attitude of Ayinde to him and his client and left the stage with his client.

He alleged that the Fuji star and some of his boys simply identified as KC and Gaji got off stage and “descended on” him where he was sitting.

The broadcaster said it took the intervention of some of his supporters and other members of the gathering to rescue him from the irate artiste and his boys.

While sharing his ordeal, Sorunke said he was attacked shortly after he had taken his client to the stage to be eulogised by Ayinde.

Sorunke, while showing journalists his swollen cheeks and lips, said he decided to make the matter public and seek justice in order to serve as a deterrent to the musician, who, according to him, has an alleged penchant for beating up people at the slightest provocation.

He alleged that the Fuji star and some of his boys simply identified as KC and Gaji got off stage and “descended on” him where he was sitting.

The broadcaster said it took the intervention of some of his supporters and other members of the gathering to rescue him from the irate artiste and his boys.

However, Ayinde’s media manager, Kunle Rasheed, denied the involvement of his boss in the violence at the party.

Rasheed was quoted in a text message to The Punch that “Nothing of such happened. Anything that happened to him (Sorunke) has nothing to do with Alhaji (Ayinde).”
