The Lagos state police command has issued a statement debunking reports that Burna Boy has reported himself to their office.
This is against reports that the singer had earlier gone to the police to sort out the allegations levelled against him.
Burna Boy was accused of being the brain behind an armed robbery attack on Mr 2Kay.
The singer was assaulted in his room at the Eko Hotel and Suites after the Buckwyld ‘n’ Breathless concert.
Reports say the robbers, who were arrested by the police, disclosed that they were hired by Burna Boy, through his manager, Joel Kantiock.
The Lagos state police command, in a statement issued by its spokesman, ASP Olarinde Famous-cole said “The Lagos state Police Command would like to inform members of the public that Damini Ogulu a.k.a ‘Burna Boy’ is YET to report himself to the police and still on the run contrary to reports making rounds on the internet that the musician has honoured police invitation.
“The command would also like to inform the public that only Burna Boy’s father, one Samuel Ogulu visited the Investigating Police Officer (IPO) in-charge of the case with the promise to bring Burna Boy before the police.
“The Command however uses this medium to urge Burna Boy’s father and relatives to do right by bringing the musician and turning him in to the police before the long arm of the law catches up with him. The command assures that justice will be done.”
