Popular Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti has recounted some of the things he experienced while in police detention.

Recall that Kuti was apprehended by the Nigerian police after slapping one of their security operatives on Third Mainland Bridge.

The singer claimed that the police officer  threatened to harm his family, hence the reason for his action.

He was later apprehended and  remanded at the State Criminal Investigations and Intelligence Department, (SCIID) Panti, Yaba, Lagos on the orders of the Yaba Chief Magistrate Court.

He was finally granted bail on Tuesday after spending eight days in detention.

Speaking via his Instastory on Friday, Kuti described some of the harsh experience in jail.

He said he was made to lay down on a “hard cold floor, in the midst of prisoners.”

He, however, added that it was “still better than sitting in the devil’s house with politicians.”
