Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti has been released on Tuesday night on bail, from the detention of the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti, Lagos.
Kuti, who turned himself in to the Lagos State Police Command, has been detained for eight days following allegations of assaulting a policeman.
A magistrates’ court in the Yaba area of Lagos State had granted Kuti bail which led to his release.
The document shows that a Sabo-Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State last week Thursday granted an application by the police for an extension of remand of Seun Kuti until Tuesday (today), to enable the police to conclude its investigation, and for the advice of the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecution.
The police had told the court that the two days remand extension that was earlier granted was not enough for it to conclude its investigation.
