Police reacts as Peter P-Square pleads leniency over Seun Kuti’s conduct
The Lagos State Police Command on Sunday, reacted to the comment by music star Peter Okoye (P-Square) on Seun Kuti’s conduct.

On Saturday, a now-viral footage surfaced on social media showing Kuti slapping a uniformed policeman.

In the video, Kuti can be seen charging at the officer on the roadside before proceeding to smack his face.

Reacting to the incident, Usman Baba, Inspector-general of Police, ordered the arrest of the musician.

Peter Okoye, on Twitter, pleaded for leniency from the police, described the incident as unfortunate, saying reports suggest Seun’s family was in danger hence the altercation.

“When you understand what happens when a man is put in a situation to protect his family from any form of danger, our emotions get the better of us.

“I ask and plead that the #NigerianPoliceForce accept our unreserved apologies for the unfortunate outburst and tamper justice with mercy,” he tweeted.

In response, Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin advised the artiste to do the same and face the consequence.

“Whenever you feel an unarmed lone police officer put your family in danger (God forbids it), go ahead and slap the officer.

“Do it in Nigeria and the USA where you visit often. I’m certain eminent Nigerians will bring up this argument of yours in your defence,” Hundeyin wrote
