The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered the immediate arrest of Seun Kuti, son of legendary Afrobeat maestro.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, revealed this in a statement on Saturday evening.
In a trending video, Seun Kuti was captured assaulting a police officer in uniform.
The video had generated different reactions. It is unclear what led to the action of the singer’s son.
According to Adejobi, “The IGP has equally ordered a speedy and full investigation into the remote and immediate cause(s) of the assault and prosecution of the suspect accordingly.”
“IGP Usman Alkali Baba assures Nigerians that acts of contempt/disdain for symbols of authority will not be tolerated while offenders of such hideous crimes will be surely brought to book.”
