A Magistrates Court in Yaba, Lagos State, has reportedly adjourned the trial of Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti, to Wednesday, May 24, 2023.
The trial, which was slated for today, May 23, 2023, was said to have been adjourned by the Chief judge, Justice Adeola Olatubosun, as a result of the judge’s absence from the court, according to report.
“The trial has been adjourned till tomorrow, May 24, 2023, because the judge is not around, the source said.
As of the time of this report, efforts to reach Seun Kuti’s manager proved abortive because his phone was switched off.
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.
The afrobeat musician later turned himself in at the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja, in the company of his lawyer and family representative, and was later transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, where he was eventually detained.
