Assault: Kuti turns self in to Police

Seun Kuti, Afrobeat singer who assaulted a police officer at the weekend turned himself in to the Lagos police early Monday morning.

Mr Kuti arrived at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) in the Panti area of the state alongside his lawyers and a family member.

The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Usman Baba last week ordered his arrest for verbally abusing and slapping a police officer at the third mainland bridge in Lagos.

Spokesman of the force command, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed his arrival and detention in series of tweets.
