The Chief Magistrates Court in Yaba, Lagos State, presided over by Adeola Olatubosun, has adjourned the trial of Seun Kuti, Afrobeat star, to Wednesday.
The sitting could not hold after the magistrate absented herself from the court.
This comes amid speculations that the Lagos State Police command is plotting to ensure that Kuti was taken to the Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Aro, Abeokuta, Ogun State, to certify that he is “mentally sick.”
Chief Magistrate Olatubosun had granted the police’s application for an extension of Seun Kuti’s remand for an additional four days.
On May 13, he was charged with assaulting a police officer on Lagos’ Third Mainland Bridge.
According to the documents attached, the application was moved by Simon Lough (SAN), who led a police legal team to court.
He said, “The extension is to allow further investigation into the case. We could not conclude investigation in 2 days, we now ask for extra 4 days to enable us to conclude the investigation.”
