Burna Boy is in Nigeria but has refused to report to the Lagos State Police Command following accusations that he ordered the violent robbery attack on singer Mr 2Kay.
Recall that the Lagos State Police Commissioner delivered a press briefing in which he listed details of the case against the dancehall singer. He requested for the singer to report to the command headquarters, but Burna Boy sent his father Samuel Ogulu Ogulu who told the police that the singer is not in Nigeria.
In a second statement shared with the press, the police noted that they feel the singer is in hiding in Nigeria.
And now, Burna Boy’s team has agreed with this, however they claim he is recording music, that it is why he has refused to visit the Lagos State Police Command headquarters.
Here’s what they told Punch:
“Burna Boy is neither on the run nor avoiding the police; he is not guilty. I cannot tell you his exact whereabouts but he is in the country recording. Also, you should know that as the festive season approaches, demand for his services would be on the increase, so he is preparing for appearances as well. Initially, when he was invited, he could not go to the station because of his engagements, so his father went to the police station in his stead. But now that the police have insisted that they want to see him personally, he would surely honour their invitation. He is not guilty of the charges levelled against him.”
We can’t wait to see where this dilly-dallying will eventually lead!
