The police escorts accompanying Nigerian artist Burna Boy, who were detained in connection with a shooting at the club owned by socialite Obi Cubana, have spoken out.
Since online reports of his police escort allegedly shooting two attendees at the Victoria Island club surfaced, Burnaboy has been in the news.
Irebami Lawrence and his comrade Tolu were allegedly shot by one of Burna Boy’s police escorts.
According to reports, the musician allegedly made a move at a woman who was later identified as Lawrence’s wife before being shot.
The Lagos State Police Commissioner’s Special Squad detained five policemen attached to Burna Boy for attempted murder.
However, according to Vanguard, 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 show up to explain his side of the matter since the incident happened, as he reportedly travelled to Spain.
