Popular musician, Burna Boy has been detained by the Lagos State Police Command and will be charged to court on Monday over allegations of involvement in the robbery of fellow musician, Mr 2kay.

Burna Boy, real name Damini Ogulu, will be arraigned alongside four members of the robbery gang already in detention.






The command had declared him wanted over the incident and he turned himself in to the police headquarters in Lagos on Friday to state his side of the controversial incident.

The ringleader of the robbery gang, Tunmise Omotore had reportedly indicted Burna Boy’s road manager, Joel Kantiock in the robbery attack on Mr 2kay at the Eko Hotel and Suites last month, where the gang had injured Mr 2kay and dispossessed him of belongings.

At arrival at the police headquarters, Burna Boy was reportedly interrogated over the incident and thereafter detained, Vanguard reported.

The State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal was quoted as saying after the interrogation that the state has zero tolerance for any form of crime, adding that there would not be any sacred cows in the battle to rid the state of criminal activities.

The official statement from the Nigerian Police force reads:

Nigerian dancehall star, Damini Ogulu popularly known as ‘Burna Boy’ on Friday submitted himself to the Lagos State Police Command to state his side of the story over allegations of his involvement in a robbery attack on a fellow artiste, Mr. 2kay.

He was subsequently arrested, interrogated and detained and is expected to be charged to court on Monday alongside four of members of the gang earlier arrested.

Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal, after the interrogation, said the State Police Command has zero tolerance for all forms of crime and would not hesitate to prosecute anyone found culpable in any criminal offence perpetrated in the State.

“There would be no sacred cows. This Command is poised to ensure that every resident can feel safe wherever they are and carry out their businesses without fear or favour. Anyone therefore found to be involved in this case would be made to face the law to clear his or her name or face prosecution,” Imohimi said.
The pop musician, who was declared wanted by the Lagos Police Command in connection with the robbery attack on another popular musician, Mr. 2kay at Eko Hotel and Suites early last month, reported to the Command headquarters in Ikeja at about 5pm.

Tunmise Omotore, gang leader of the suspected robbers, had confessed on how they disguised as room service to rob Mr. 2kay at Eko Hotel and Suites on the instruction of Burba Boy’s Road Manager, Joel Kantiock.
