Stefflon Don has spoken out about the police’s treatment of her brother, who is the rapper Dutchavelli, after he posted about attending the Black Lives Matter protest on Saturday.
Posting on Twitter, Stefflon Don said Dutchavelli was wanted by the police and that they want to recall him to prison.
“He did not even end up go[ing] to the protest,” she wrote, also mentioning that the police came to her sister’s house, “ransacked it and searched everywhere.”
The news comes after Digga D said he had been threatened with prison recall for posting about the protest, saying he was forbidden from speaking out about the movement as it is “promoting violence”.

My brother is wanted by the @metpoliceuk because he said on Instagram that he was going to the BLM protest last Saturday but he did not even go. They came bursting into my sisters house while her child was there ransacked it and searched every where. @BorisJohnson how is this ok? pic.twitter.com/vcCh71SLpZ
