The Lagos State Police Command has revealed why it invaded the residence of popular musician, Seun Kuti, on Tuesday.
The Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, on Tuesday, said the police ransacked Seun Kuti’s house over the alleged discovery of suspicious things.

Seun Kuti was arrested for assaulting a police officer on Sunday.
Responding to a Nigerian who condemned the invasion, Hundeyin on Wednesday said the things stumbled upon needed to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
“In the course of our investigation, we stumbled on certain suspicious things that needed to be proven/disproved beyond a reasonable doubt.
“We, therefore, applied for and duly got a search warrant from the court, which we have executed. Investigation continues.” the PPRO added.
