The Lagos State Police Command had taken Seun to court to secure a 21-day remand order but the court granted the singer bail.

Upon completion of an investigation, the police should hand over the case to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions, his lawyer added.

The musician spent the night with the police at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti, Yaba on Monday after he turned himself in to the police following an order for his arrest by the Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba.

The singer was captured on video slapping and assaulting a policeman on a busy Lagos road.
