— Police confirm arrest of singer Seun Kuti after first failed attempt
— According to reports, he is currently being interrogated at the state CID, Panti, Lagos.
The Nigerian police through its PRO, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi has confirmed the arrest of singer Seun Kuti after an initial failed attempt.
Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi says the Afrobeat singer is currently being interrogated by the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Lagos State.
You would recall that the inspector general of police, Baba Alkali ordered the immediate arrest of the singer last week after a video of him assaulting a police officer went viral.
An attempt was made to get him arrested on Sunday the 14th of May but Seun’s absence was met when the policemen reached his Allen Avenue apartment. It was reported that he submitted himself to the police earlier today and was arrested and handcuffed immediately.
In a tweet by the PRO, Prince Olumuyiwa Adejobi shared images of Seun Kuti in handcuffs and wrote:
Assault: Seun Kuti under interrogation at the State CID Panti. We speak and act against attacks and assaults on Police officers, its evil and criminal.
