The music star was released to his family on Tuesday evening after spending eight days in police custody.

In a series of posts via Instagram, Seun appreciated his legal advisers for their support during his ordeal with the police.

He also appreciated “everyone who showed me all this love” including his wife.

The singer said although he is an orphan, his family members stood by him during hard times.

“I want to say a profound thank you to everyone who showed me all this love. All my friends that showed up. Thanks most especially to my beautiful wife @chefyeidekuti,” he wrote.

”Last but not least, the legal team. Uncle Femi Falana, SAN, Uncle Olumide Fisika, SAN, Uncle Kayode Adegoke, SAN, Barrister Ogunlana, Ade Ademiluyi; and everyone on the team, I owe you my freedom and my sanity. Let’s go.

Seun, the youngest son of Fela Kuti, the late Afrobeat legend, was apprehended on May 15 after he was filmed assaulting a police officer on the Third Mainland Bridge.

He was detained at the state criminal investigation Department (SCID) and arraigned before the magistrate’s court on May 16.

The police had sought to get an order to further keep him in custody for 21 days pending the conclusion of its investigation.
