The Lagos state Police Command has said Nigerian hip hop singer, Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy is yet to honour its invitation for questioning for allegedly masterminding the robbery of Abiye Jumbo aka Mr. 2Kay.
On Monday, the police had invited the singer to the command for questioning.
Also, the singer’s management on Tuesday issued a statement denying his involvement in the robbery.
According to the singer’s management, “it is pertinent to note that he was never served an arrest warrant nor has he been declared wanted.
“We are confident that the Nigerian police will deal with this fairly and squarely,” it said.
His management team also said the first invitation Burna Boy got has been honoured on Tuesday, November 20, 2017.
“The first and only invitation Burna Boy has ever received from the police was issued yesterday Nov 20th, 2017. This invitation was honored yesterday Nov 20th, 2017 and it has been made clear that he is happy to cooperate with the police as best as he can.”
But the Command has denied reports that the singer honored their invitation, adding that he might be on the run.
The statement issued by Olarinde Famous-Cole, the Command’s spokesman said contrary to reports, Burna Boy is still on the run.
“We 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,” the statement said.
