The Chief Magistrate Court in Yaba, Lagos State, on Tuesday
granted bail to Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti.


The court also ordered police to finish their investigation
into the alleged assault of a policeman within 48 hours.


The Police prosecutor, S. A. Adebese had prayed that the
court remand the defendant for 21 days.


The Counsel said the three weeks would allow the Directorate
of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to prepare legal advice.


But the defence counsel, Femi Falana, a Senior Advocate of
Nigeria (SAN), opposed the plea in his argument.


Falana begged the court not to remand his client, adding
that he was not aware of an application to that effect.
