The Lagos State Police order has purportedly guaranteed that the cop who was attacked by Afrobeats vocalist, Seun Kuti is in unconsciousness.

Sahara Reporters claims that police prosecutors requested a remand order to detain Seun for 21 days from Magistrate Court 1, Yaba, and that the officer was receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.

An observer who talked with Sahara Correspondents, said; ” The Main Judge Mrs, Adeola Olatunbosun Justice Court 1 Yaba took explanation from the Nigerian police applying to confine Seun Kuti for 21 days, guaranteeing the police officer he supposedly attacked is in a state of extreme lethargy at an undisclosed emergency clinic.

“In any case, Kuti’s attorney, Adeyinka Olumide-Fusika countered that the police previously expressed freely that the cop followed and went to Seun’s home and acknowledged N12,000 to fix his vehicle. Additionally, it came to light that the DCP in Panti had secretly transported Seun to the court without informing his attorney before going to meet the Magistrate.

“They also accused Seun of not writing a statement, but Olumide-Fusika countered that he was there when Seun wrote a statement. The Chief Magistrate decided to go on recess to ‘study the file.’”

The court also ordered the Nigerian police to conclude investigation into the alleged assault in 48 hours and allow Kuti to return home.

“The court grants police 48 hours to complete ‘their investigations’ after which Kuti can be left to go home on bail.

“Kuti’s bail is with two sureties who must be with landed property in Lagos”.
