The Nigerian police on Tuesday, conducted a search at Seun Kuti’s residence, located off Allen Avenue in Ikeja, Lagos state, confiscating his wife’s cellphone and taking the musician with them while they searched his apartment.
An eyewitness who pleaded anonymity disclosed this.
The eyewitness said, “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 and searched his apartment. But they also seized his wife’s phone before driving off with Seun Kuti.”
Blueprint had reported that the prosecution led by S. A Adebese and Morufu Animashaun prayed the court to remand the defendant for 21 days pending legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions.
However, Kuti’s counsel, led by Adeyinka Olumide-Fusika, SAN, prayed the court not to remand his client, stating that they (the counsel) were not aware of the remand application.
