Mohammed Aminu, the police officer who was assaulted by Afrobeat singer Seun Kuti, has been promoted.

Recall that in May, Kuti was seen in a viral video assaulting the police officer, who, despite the provocation, did nothing in response.

Kuti was later detained and arraigned for assault, for which he claimed not guilty and was granted bail. The Police Service Commission (PSC) said in a statement on Thursday, July 20, 2023, that the officer had been promoted to the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP).

A statement by the PSC spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani, said Aminu, despite the assault, exhibited a high level of professionalism. “Inspector Mohammed Aminu, who trended on social Media where he was seen being assaulted in uniform by one Seun Kuti, was also promoted to ASP I,” Ani said.
