Human Rights Lawyer, Femi Falana on Sunday confirmed that he would be defending Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti who sought his legal services following the singer’s assault on a police officer.

Falana, who confirmed the development to punchng, also noted that the singer has enough evidence to defend himself.

He said, “I am his lawyer and he has briefed me. He certainly has evidence. This is not the first time he is dealing with the police.”

There were speculations that a team of police drafted to effect Kuti’s arrest could not locate him upon getting to his residence.

Efforts to however confirm the development from the police authorities proved abortive, as the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, could not be reached by phone.

Falana while reacting to this disclosed that the embattled singer would turn himself in on Monday.
He said, “He is going to report himself to the police tomorrow morning. There is no problem at all.”
