Seun Kuti may have bitten off more than he can chew as an eyewitness has revealed that the singer's apartment was invaded and ransacked by policemen.
The son of the legendary Afrobeat icon, Femi Kuti, was granted bail on Tuesday after being detained for assaulting a police officer during the weekend.
Speaking on lawmen pillaging his house on Tuesday, an individual who witnessed the incident disclosed that the search was conducted so as to obtain exhibits.
“The police officers invaded Seun’s home here on my street, Akin Osiyemi, and he was in the vehicle with them while in handcuffs.
“They stormed his apartment in search of exhibits. But they also seized his wife’s phone before driving off with Seun Kuti”, the witness shared.
Additionally, a police source within the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Yaba, Lagos told Vanguard that the artiste was humiliated and threatened by aggrieved police officers while detained in a police cell on Monday.
“Some of my colleagues who were aggrieved over the incident took turns in humiliating and threatening Seun Kuti on Monday.
“The officers told him that he would have been dead if they were the ones he slapped during the altercation with their colleague on Saturday.
“He wasn’t even allowed to make a written statement until about 8 pm on Monday night, and he refused to give a statement after he was brought to the counter.”
Seun Kuti's bail takes effect after he has completed his two-day detention. The case was adjourned to May 22, 2023, for mention.
