Arrest Seun Kuti over assault on policeman - IGP Baba

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba,  has ordered the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, CP Idowu Owohunwa  to arrest Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti, for assaulting a policeman on the 3rd Mainland bridge, Lagos.

The order was in reaction of a video that went viral , where Kuti was seen pushing and slapping the policeman whose identity was yet to be ascertained as of time of writing this report.
 In the  video, the policeman maintained calm throughout, without uttering a  word, as Kuti slapped him and  at the same time shouted ' you dey craze? You dey mad? 

Announcing  the order for his arrest in a statement issued this night ,  the Force Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said " The IGP has equally ordered a speedy and full investigation into the remote and immediate cause(s) of the assault and prosecution of the suspect accordingly. 

"IGP Usman Alkali Baba assures Nigerians that acts of contempt/disdain for symbols of authority will not be tolerated while offenders of such  crimes will be surely brought to book". 

However , a statement attributed  to the Afrobeat singer , claimed the policeman allegedly  attempted to kill the former and members of his family.

But there was no further explanation on the exact action of the policeman .
