Supporters of musician Seun Kuti gathered outside the magistrate’s court in Yaba, Lagos State to demand the singer’s release.
The trial, which was slated for today, was said to have been adjourned as a result of the judge’s absence from the court, a source disclosed.
Justice Adeola Olatubosun of the Chief Magistrates Court in Yaba, Lagos State, has reportedly adjourned the trial of Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti, to Wednesday, May 24, 2023.
The protesters held posters and banners with inscriptions such as “End police brutality,” “Free Seun Kuti,” and others.
Seun Kuti was arrested for assaulting a police officer on the Third Mainland bridge, prompting the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, to order his arrest.
