Seun Kuti, the renowned Nigerian musician and son of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, has been apprehended by the Lagos state police for allegedly assaulting a police officer, according to authorities on Monday. The arrest order was issued on Saturday following the circulation of a viral video depicting Kuti engaged in a heated altercation with a police officer, involving shouting and physical contact.

In a voluntary act of compliance, Kuti presented himself at the headquarters of the Lagos state police command early Monday morning, accompanied by legal representation and a family representative, stated Benjamin Hundeyin, a police spokesperson, via Twitter. Hundeyin confirmed that Kuti, a Grammy-nominated saxophonist and singer, has been placed under arrest in adherence to the law.

“The ongoing investigation will be conducted with meticulous attention, transparency, and professionalism, ensuring that justice is served for all parties involved,” assured Hundeyin.

Seun Kuti, 40, stands as the youngest son of the late Fela Kuti, an influential figure who propelled Afrobeat—a potent fusion of funk and jazz—to global prominence during the 1980s. The incident surrounding Kuti’s arrest marks a significant development, attracting public attention and raising questions about the circumstances surrounding the altercation with the police officer.
