Seun Kuti Released On Bail

Mr. Seun Kuti was released to his family yesterday evening after meeting his bail conditions. 

Adeyinka Olumide-Fusika, the singer’s counsel, confirmed he was released around 7.30 pm.

Mr Olumide-Fusika says his client will be at the magistrate’s court in Yaba for the proceedings which were adjourned on Tuesday.

Mr Kuti’s counsel says the proceeding is to receive the director of public prosecution (DPP)’s advice.

Seun, the youngest son of Fela Kuti, the late Afrobeat legend, was apprehended on April 15 after he was filmed assaulting a police officer on Third Mainland Bridge.

He was detained at the state criminal investigation Department (SCID) and arraigned before the magistrate’s court on May 16.

The police had sought to get an order to further keep him in custody for 21 days pending the conclusion of its investigation.

However Justice Adeola Olatubosun, the chief magistrate, only granted an extension of 48 hours upon which the police was mandated to release him on bail.

Last Thursday, the Chief Magistrate extended Mr Kuti’s remand for an additional four days to enable the police to continue with its investigation.
