Kuti had turned himself in at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters in Ikeja on Monday days after he was seen in a viral video assaulting a policeman in traffic and subsequent order given for his arrest.
The Lagos based senior lawyer, who accompanied the Musician to the Police Command headquarters, fingered the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Benjamin Hundeyin, for the alleged maltreatment of his client, which he described as illegal since he (the client) is presumed innocent until proven otherwise.
