After firing bullets at the Cubana Club in Victoria Island, Lagos, the police bodyguards assigned to the Nigerian artist Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, have broken their silence.
The married woman who was involved in the shooting event presented her own account of what happened at the club in a series of social media posts just a week prior to this.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, told Vanguard that the arrested police escorts stated that the gunshot discharged was not from their rifles during interrogation and denied firing rounds at the celebration.
The police allegedly argued that other uniformed officers were present on the club’s property when the incident took place.
“Policemen affiliated to Burna Boy are being investigated because of the shooting at the club,” stated Muyiwa Adejobi. Because the policeman denied doing so, detectives have been unable to identify the shooter.
“In order to determine whether they fired any shots or not, we resorted to conducting a ballistic investigation on their firearms. We find it difficult to believe their denial that they fired a shot. To decide that, we need the advice of a specialist. The outcome will determine whether or not they are cleared or found guilty.
