Human Rights Lawyer, Femi Falana said on Sunday that Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti, had sought his legal service following the singer’s assault on a police officer.
Falana, who confirmed the development to our correspondent, also noted that the singer has enough evidence to defend himself.
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.”
Falana while reacting to this disclosed that the embattled singer would turn himself in on Monday.
He said, “He is going to report himself to the police tomorrow morning. There is no problem at all.”
Akelicious reported that a viral video of the singer assaulting a police officer on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State emerged on Saturday.
The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, as a result, ordered the arrest of the singer.
The IG has equally ordered a speedy and full investigation into the remote and immediate cause(s) of the alleged assault and prosecution of the suspect accordingly.
This was as the musician alleged attempted murder of himself and his family by the police officer in question, in a social media post obtained by our correspondent on Saturday night.
