Fela was arrested 200 times by different miltary regimes, but was kept in jail for a lengthy period of time by (then) Major-General Buhari, who first came to power in a military coup in December 1983. He was sentenced by a military tribunal to five years’ imprisonment, on what he always insisted were trumped-up currency charges, but was released in 1986 after General Ibrahim Babangida came to power. #HistoryVille
