Seun Kuti, son of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, has said being in prison is better than sitting with politicians.
Seen stated this via a post on his Insta story.
“Dem put me for hard cold floor, in the midst of prisoners still better than sitting in the devil’s house with politicians,” he wrote in pidgin.
The Afrobeat musician was released on bail, on Tuesday night, after spending few days in detention.
The musician had reported to the Lagos State Police Command headquarters after the Inspector-General of Police ordered his arrest for assaulting a policeman.
He was subsequently detained at State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) after a Magistrate’s Court in Lagos ordered his remand.
The police had sought to get an order to further keep him in custody for 21 days pending the conclusion of its investigation.
But the court directed the police to detain Kuti for additional 48 hours and then release him on bail.
He is currently on an European tour, sparking concerns that he might jump bail, but his lawyer has assured that Seun would be in court for his trial.
