Nigerians React As Naira Marley 'Fans' Attack Ruggedman

A storm of mixed reactions by Nigerians has greeted the news of an attack on veteran Nigerian musician, Ruggedman.

Naija News had reported earlier that four men suspected to be supporters of singer Naira Marley attacked Ruggedman at a restaurant in London, United Kingdom.

Ruggedman confirmed the attack in a post on social media network, Instagram saying: “Being attacked by 4 misguided boys will not deter me from fighting for the youths, even though they blindly fight me.”

Meanwhile, Naija News reports that the news of the attack came on the day Naira Marley regained freedom after spending weeks in prison custody for fraud.

Before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arraigned Naira Marley, Ruggedman had warned the singer against supporting internet fraudsters.

Days after the warning Naira Marley was arrested and charged for fraud by the EFCC, with his fans claiming Ruggedman was the brain behind the arrest, an accusation which Ruggedman debunked.

Moments after the attack on Ruggedman, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to air their opinions on the ugly incident.
