It was earlier reported that the Chief Magistrate Court in Yaba, Lagos had granted bail to Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti.
The court also ordered the Nigerian police to finish their investigation into the alleged assault of a policeman in 48 hours and allow Kuti to go home.
“The court grants police 48 hours to complete ‘their investigations’ after which Kuti can be left to go home on bail.
