Falana To Defend Seun Kuti Over Assault On Police Officer

Femi Falana, a human rights lawyer, has revealed that Seun Kuti, a Nigerian Afrobeat singer, will report to the police on Monday, following the arrest warrant issued by the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba.

Spark News Daily reports that this comes after the speculation that a team of police stormed Seun’s home at Allen Avenue on Sunday, but met his absence.

Falana told PUNCH on Sunday that the embattled singer sought his legal counsel following the assault on a police officer.

He also confirmed that the singer has enough evidence to defend himself and that this is not his first encounter with the police.

He said;

I am his lawyer and he has briefed me. He certainly has evidence. This is not the first time he is dealing with the police.

He is going to report himself to the police tomorrow morning. There is no problem at all.

A video of Seun Kuti pushing and slapping a police officer went viral on social media. The video also showed Seun’s wife intervening to calm him down, but he went ahead and slapped the cop.

Kuti took to his Instagram story after the video of the assault went viral to explain that the officer attempted to “kill” him and his family.

Following that, the Inspector General of Police ordered the singer’s immediate arrest.
