Seun Kuti spotted in video clip flying out of Nigeria after being released by police
Falana warned that unless the police appealed the judge’s order, they wouldn’t be able to prosecute Kuti
Seun Kuti, a Nigerian Afrobeat musician, has been released from police custody and is now on his way to Switzerland for a summer European tour.
He was unable to perform at a concert in Majorca Island, Spain, due to his detention by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) following allegations of assaulting a policeman.
Kuti’s departure for Zurich, where he is scheduled to perform on Thursday, was confirmed by a source who spoke with SaharaReporters.
Kuti’s trial has been adjourned to July 3, and his recent release from custody followed a clash between the Chief Magistrate, Adeola Olatubosun, and the police over new charges brought against Kuti.
Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), was instrumental in blocking these fresh charges, citing the police’s disregard for a court order mandating the case file be sent to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Falana warned that unless the police appealed the judge’s order, they wouldn’t be able to prosecute Kuti.
