Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore has alleged that the Nigerian Police secretly took embattled Afrobeats singer, Seun Kuti to court without his lawyers being present.
According to the activist, after the alleged secret trial, the magistrate decided to extend Seun's time in custody to four additional days.
Disclosing this in a tweet on Thursday morning, Sowore noted that “@policeng secretly took Seun Kuti before the Chief Magistrate, Mrs. Adeola Olatunbosun today without informing his lawyers. The Magistrate reportedly granted police request to extend their investigation time for four more days.
“The reason was to ensure @RealSeunKuti is prevented from resuming his #GETTHESAX Summer Tour which was billed to start on May 20, 2023 in Calvia, Spain. This was never about getting justice but to exact maximum revenge. #Revolutionnow.” Sowore said.

It would be recalled that Sowore was the one who informed the Nigeria police, of Seun’s willingness to appear at the commissioner of police’s office, as a way of cooperating with them in their investigations of what transpired on the third mainland bridge, that led to the assault on an officer of the law.
