Justice Adeola Olatubosun of the Chief Magistrates Court in Yaba, Lagos State, has adjourned the trial of Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti, to Wednesday, May 24, 2023.
The trial, which was slated for May 23, 2023, was said to have been adjourned as a result of the judge’s absence from the court, according to a source who pleaded anonymity.
“The trial has been adjourned till tomorrow, May 24, 2023, because the judge is not around, the source said.
However, efforts to reach Seun Kuti’s manager proved abortive because his phone was switched off.
But Seun’s elder sister, Yeni Kuti, who is currently out of the country, said she was aware of the adjournment.
She said, “I have no knowledge of the adjournment, his wife has not reached out to me today; she has not sent me an SMS to that effect; none of them has sent me a text yet. But I will call the wife now, you can call me back in 10 minutes.”
