Nigerian singer, Seun Kuti, on Monday, submitted himself to help with the investigation hours after going viral for assaulting an officer of the Nigeria Police Force in Lagos.
Recall that the son of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, engaged in an altercation with a police officer days ago.
In a viral video, Seun was captured in a heated argument with the officer who was standing in the middle of a busy road.
During the altercation, Seun slapped the officer.
The development has generated mixed reactions on and off social media.
The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, immediately ordered Seun’s arrest after the video went viral.
“The IGP has equally ordered a speedy and full investigation into the remote and immediate cause(s) of the assault and prosecution of the suspect accordingly.”
