Drama as police reportedly parade Seun Kuti with Inmates
The Nigerian police have reportedly paraded Seun Kuti with other inmates of the Panti Police facility days after manhandling a police officer in uniform.
A viral photo captured the son of legendary Afrobeats pioneer, Fela Kuti, sitting with some inmates while they were captured.
Reports trailing photo claimed that the afrobeat artiste has reportedly been denied access to a decent meal over his refusal to tender a statement.
Many who reacted to the photo alleged that it was edited to make it look like the singer is being punished, while some claimed it was a ploy to humiliate him.
Recall that Seun Kuti was arrested on Monday by the Nigerian police for manhandling one of its officers. This came after he was filmed assaulting an officer on the third mainland bridge in Lagos state.
A short video clip went viral on Saturday showing Kuti, who wore a red shirt and white pair of trousers, pushing a policeman, who stood beside a Toyota Hilux police van.
