A Chief Magistrates Court sitting in Yaba, Lagos State, presided over by Magistrate Adeola Olatubosun on Tuesday adjourned the trial of Afrobeat music star, Seun Kuti, to Wednesday, May 24, 2023.
The trial, which was earlier scheduled to continue today, May 23, 2023, was adjourned as a result of the absence of the judge from the court, according to the Punch reports, quoting a source who pleaded anonymity.
“The trial has been adjourned till tomorrow, May 24, 2023, because the judge is not around”, the source said.
Efforts to get confirmation of the adjournment from Seun’s manager however proved abortive as his phone was switched off.
It was early reported that, Seun Kuti was arrested and arraigned in court for assaulting a police officer on the Third Mainland bridge.
The court at the last sitting gave its nod to a request by the police to keep him for another four days, after initially ordering his release from police custody after 48 hours.
