Assault: Seun Kuti Hires Falana to defend him, Set to Report to the Police on Monday
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.
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 arrest in 1993.
