The police escorts attached to popular singer and Grammy Award winner Burna Boy, who were arrested over a shooting at Obi Cubana’s club have broken silence.
Recall that reports of the alleged shooting of two fun-seekers by the singer’s police escort at the club situated in Victoria Island had surfaced online. One of Burna Boy’s police escorts was said to have opened fire on Irebami Lawrence and Tolu, his friend. The shooting was said to have occurred after the singer allegedly made a pass at a lady said to be Lawrence’s wife.
The Lagos State Police Commissioner’s Special Squad detained five policemen attached to Burna Boy for attempted murder.
However, the policemen, who were arrested on the directive of the inspector-general of police, denied firing shots at the party and insisted during interrogation that the bullet fired was not from their rifles.
The policemen, all corporals, were said to have argued that there were other uniform policemen within the premises of the club when the incident happened.
Meanwhile, Burna Boy is yet to speak up about the matter since the incident happened, as he reportedly travelled to Spain.
Fans reacted after the lady simply identified as Briella Name, Burna Boy’s “object of attraction” took to her Instagram page to reveal how the incident left her traumatized and broken.
