Seun Kuti, the son of legendary Afrobeat musician Fela Kuti, has been placed under arrest by Inspector-General of Police Usman Alkali Baba.
In a statement on Saturday night, the Force’s Public Relations Officer Olumuyiwa Adejobi made this disclosure.
Seun Kuti was seen in a video assaulting a police officer who was wearing a uniform.
Different responses had been elicited by the video. What motivated the singer’s son to act in that manner is unknown.
“IGP Usman Alkali Baba assures Nigerians that acts of contempt/disdain for symbols of authority will not be tolerated while offenders of such hideous crimes will be surely brought to book,” Adejobi said in a statement.
