Damini Ogulu popularly known as Burna Boy, is to be arraigned in court today, December 18th over his alleged involvement in the robbery attack of Mr 2Kay, at the Eko Hotel in October after he was arrested on Friday.
According to Lagos State spokesperson, SP Chike Oti, Burna boy was arrested on Friday after he submitted himself to the Lagos State Police Command. He was also “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,” the statement quoted Imohimi as saying.
In November, the Lagos state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, declared Burna Boy ‘wanted’ after his manager, Joe Kantiock, and two of the robbery suspects, confessed that the singer had paid money for the attack to be carried out.
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.
