“Officer slapped by Seun Kuti is in coma” – Police tells court
The Lagos State Police command has allegedly claimed that the police officer who was assaulted by Afrobeats singer, Seun Kuti is in coma.
According to Edujandon.com, police prosecutors asked the Magistrate Court 1, Yaba for a remand order to detain Seun for 21 days, adding that the officer was receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.
Chief Magistrate, Adeola Olatunbosun, however, granted bail to the defendant.
A witness who spoke with SaharaReporters, said; “The Chief Magistrate Mrs, Adeola Olatunbosun Magistrate Court 1 Yaba took statement from the Nigerian police applying to detain Seun Kuti for 21 days, claiming the policeman he allegedly assaulted is in a coma at an undisclosed hospital.
“However, Kuti’s lawyer, Adeyinka Olumide-Fusika countered that the police already stated publicly that the police officer trailed and went to Seun’s house and accepted N12,000 to repair his car. It also emerged that the DCP in Panti had gone to meet the Magistrate earlier before secretly moving Seun to the court without notifying his lawyer.
“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”.
