The reason police searched Seun Kuti’s Lagos residence has been stated by Benjamin Hundeyin, the public relations officer for the Lagos State Police.
In an interview on Wednesday, Benjamin Hundeyin stated that the police command had properly gotten a warrant to search Seun Kuti’s home.
He explained that the search was a component of the ongoing investigation into the alleged assault Seun Kuti committed.
“It’s part of our ongoing investigations. We were investigating assault, we stumbled on some things we needed to verify. We got a duly issued search warrant, which we executed,” Hundeyin said.
Meanwhile, the lawyer representing the Afrobeat musician, Olumide Adeyinka-Fusika has revealed that he is unaware the police seized his client’s gun licence.
The counsel representing Seun Kuti also noted in a statement that there is no link between his client’s case of assaulting a policeman and a gun licence.
He said; “Regrettably, I’m not aware of this. However, a licence is not a gun. A gun license is a mere piece of paper authorising the bearer or licence to own and have possession of a specified piece of arm (gun).
“Besides, what’s the connection between the allegation of slapping a policeman and police seizure of his gun licence?”
