In a quick chat with BroadwayTV, Nigerian rapper Terry Apala has said he thinks Burna Boy is innocent, and didn’t do anything to fellow singer, Mr 2Kay.
He also added that the police should leave Burma Boy alone, and stop trying to rope him (Burna Boy) into the whole situation.
Watch the Video:
Recall, Burna Boy’s management released a statement saying that Burna has honored the police invitation, and is cooperating with them the best he can.
The statement reads;
“We use this medium to categorically state that Burna Boy, is not in any way involved with the robbery and beating up of Grafton Records’ Artiste, Mr. 2Kay on the 22nd of October, 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.
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 professionally.”
Now, the Lagos State Police has denied the singer honored their invitation, disclosing that he might be on the run.
Their statement below;
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.
