The Nigeria Police, on Monday, publicly requested that Nigerian dancehall singer, Burna Boy, make himself available for questioning over his involvement in the robbery of colleague, Mr. 2kay.
Two days after, the Portharcourt born singer is yet to honour the invitation, leading the police to issue a press release today, Wednesday, where it stated the singer is on the run contrary to online reports that he has reported to the police.
In the release titled ‘Burna Boy still on the run’, the police asked relatives of the singer to do the right thing.
“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.
