The three weeks, according to the attorney, would give the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to draft legal recommendations.

However, in his argument, defence lawyer Adeyinka Olumide-Fusika, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), contested the petition.

Olumide-Fusika pleaded with the court not to remand his client, saying he was unaware of any such application.

After his vehicle was halted on the Third Mainland Bridge, the son of the famed Fela Kuti was detained for slapping an officer.

Seun Kuti refused to make any statements during questioning at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) in Panti, Yaba.

According to his lawyer, Benjamin Hundeyin, a police spokesperson, proclaimed himself the Investigating Police Officer (IPO) by “issuing a report of his investigative work” in the media.
