The Nigeria Police Force has ordered Lagos State Police Commissioner, Abiodun Alabi, to conduct an investigation into the alleged shooting of two people by five Police escorts attached to the popular musician, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy.
The shooting occurred on June 8, 2022, at Club Cubana in Victoria Island, Lagos.
Force Headquarters spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, in his tweet, yesterday, said the escorts have been identified, arrested and detained for their misconduct.
The escorts were said to have shot two clubgoers identified as Irebami Lawrence and Tolu.
However, the spokesperson in the tweet said the Force Headquaters has ordered the CP to forward the result of the investigation for appropriate action.
It was learnt that on that fateful day, the musician and five police escorts visited the club at about 4 am.
On arrival, four of the escorts were said to have waited at the entrance of the clubhouse while the fifth, who was in mufti, escorted Burna Boy to his VIP seat in the company of three women.
Vanguard gathered that while the clubbing was in top gear, the musician spotted another woman on whom he made advances at.
Unfortunately, her husband who was present was said to have rebuffed the musician, asking him to keep off.
This reportedly led to an argument between the man’s friends and Burna Boy’s team. The police escort as a result allegedly shot the two men.
Meanwhile, the musician fled the scene after realising what transpired but the Police, thereafter, arrested and detained the escorts.
CSP Muyiwa Adejobi confirmed the arrest to Vanguard Nigeria stating that investigations into the matter have since commenced.
He assured members of the public that the matter will be unravelled.
He noted that “we have commenced investigation into this matter. The policemen have been identified and arrested. They have been detained immediately after the incident.”
“The IGP has ordered the CP Lagos, Abiodun Alabi, to conclude his investigation and forward report for necessary action.”
