Police starve Seun Kuti, deny wife access – Lawyer


Adeyinka Olumide-Fusika, counsel to embattled Afrobeats singer Seun Kuti, has accused Lagos Police of starving his client in detention.

Kuti’s lawyer, in a statement, slammed the investigation conducted by the Lagos police spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, on the slapping incident that led to the detention of Kuti. 


He said Kuti would address Hundeyin’s published “investigative findings” in due course, at an appropriate time and place, defending himself against any allegations made.

Olumide-Fusika said:  “Mr. Benjamin Hundeyin who goes by the formal title of Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer but doubles as the Investigating Police Officer into the case of alleged assault of a policeman by my client, Mr. Seun Kuti, has issued a Report of his investigative work.

He alleged the police refused to provide his client with food while his wife was denied access, causing the music star to starve.

“Mr. Seun Kuti would have expected that having completed his investigative work, Mr. Benjamin Hundeyin, a law enforcer, would proceed according to law by sending the file containing his report of investigation for legal evaluation towards possible prosecution.
