Human Rights Lawyer, Femi Falana said on Sunday that Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti, had sought his legal services following the singer’s assault on a police officer.
Falana, who confirmed the development to our correspondent, also noted that the singer has enough evidence to defend himself.
He said, “I am his lawyer and he has briefed me. He certainly has evidence. This is not the first time he is dealing with the police.”
There were speculations that a team of police drafted to effect Kuti’s arrest could not locate him upon getting to his residence.
Efforts to however confirm the development from the police authorities proved abortive, as the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, could not be reached by phone.
Falana while reacting to this disclosed that the embattled singer would turn himself in on Monday.
He said, “He is going to report himself to the police tomorrow morning. There is no problem at all.”
It could be recalled that Falana represented the singer’s father, Fela, during his agitation against the Nigerian government, which resulted in his own arrest in 1993.
PUNCH reported that a viral video of the singer assaulting a police officer on the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos State emerged on Saturday.
