Grammy-award-winning singer, Burna Boy has reportedly jetted out of Nigeria to Spain after his escorts allegedly shot two people in Lagos State.
It was reported that the singer was at the Club Cubana during the week alongside his police escorts when the messy event happened.
A preliminary police report by the Bar Beach Police Division in Lagos State revealed that the unrest happened on June 8, 2022, when Burna Boy five police officers attached to him as escorts visited Club Cubana on Victoria Island.
Burna Boy was said to have entered the VIP section of the club with one of the escorts while four others hanged around outside the club. Where he was seated, the singer who was already with three women reportedly spotted another woman and immediately sent for her.
However, the lady snubbed the invite as her husband who was said to be present, lambasted Burna Boy, insisting that it was disrespectful for any man to make advances on his wife.
A few minutes later, Burna Boy reportedly made fresh advances toward the woman and the development stirred commotion. This infuriated her husband further and his friends who had gathered at the club and the matter soon degenerated.
“As things were getting heated, Ibrahim brought out his service pistol and shot multiple times while Burna Boy was laughing,” a senior policeman told newsmen.
In the process, one Irebami Lawrence and another identified simply as Tolu was shot. Lawrence was reportedly shot in the thigh while Tolu got hit in the head.
“Aware of what he had done, Burna Boy took the next flight out without even informing the policemen. He only made a video call to them to inform them that he had travelled to Spain. All his police escorts have been arrested and are currently at the Command headquarters,” a top source at the office of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police told Sunday Punch.
