Police officers allegedly found suspicious items at Seun Kuti’s house



The Lagos State Command of the Nigeria Police Force said it has discovered suspicious items while searching the residence of Seun Kuti, son of Afrobeat maestro, Fela Kuti.

Benjamin Hundeyin, Police Public Relations Officer, said this while reacting to a social media criticism surrounding the invasion of the residence of the embattled musician.

NewsWireNGR reports that Mr Kuti has been in detention after he was captured assaulting a police operative in uniform.

The musician has since been arraigned in court and undergoing investigations in police custody.

On Thursday, the founder of the online news platform, Nairaland, Seun Osewa, had accused the police of harassing Mr Kuti’s family by ransacking their home and seizing his wife’s phone.

He said the action of the police would make them lose the sympathy of Nigerians who have condemned the physical assault of its personnel by the singer.

But responding to the tweet, Mr Hundeyin said: “In the course of our investigation, we stumbled on certain suspicious things that needed to be proven/disproved beyond a reasonable doubt.

“We, therefore, applied for and duly got a search warrant from the court which we have executed. Investigation continues.

“No law restricts the police to investigate only the initial crime. World over, Police Departments stumble on other crimes while investigating an initial crime.

“We are duty bound to investigate them in line with our mandate of detecting and investigating crimes.”
