KanyiDaily published a video showing the moment Seun Kuti was seen aggressively approaching a policeman and pushing him on the chest during a confrontation on Saturday, May 13.

The youngest child of the late Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti, who wore a red shirt and white pair of trousers, proceeded to slap the police officer, who stood beside a Toyota Hilux police van.

While assaulting the cop, the musician was heard saying, “You dey crase, you dey mad?”, but the police officer kept his cool throughout the whole confrontation.

The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba has ordered the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, to arrest Seun Kuti for assaulting a police officer in uniform.

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.

In a series of posts shared on his Twitter page, the musician claimed that the policeman attempted to kill him and his family members. He said the policeman has apologized and he has forgiven him.

Kuti, who also reacted to the order for his arrest, promised to cooperate with the police authorities, stressing that whoever was wrong should be punished.

“He tried to kill me and my family. I have the proof but I no dey chase clout. He has apologised and I have agreed not to press charges. Make una mind una business make the poor guy no lose him job.

“I welcome the investigation and will give my full cooperation! I also pray to the IGP that whoever is wrong should be indicted,” the musician wrote.
