The Lagos State Police Commissioner’s Special Squad has arrested five policemen attached to Burna Boy for attempted murder after they shot two clubbers, Irebami Lawrence and another identified simply as Tolu, at Club Cubana in Lagos on Wednesday.
Just recently, an alleged attempt by Burna Boy to have a married woman around him sparked a bloody incident.
Trouble started around 4am on June 8, 2022 when the Grammy winner and five police escorts visited Club Cubana in Victoria Island.
About four policemen waited outside while one of the policemen identified as Inspector Ibrahim, who was in mufti, accompanied the the 30-year-old into the club.
According to multiple witness statements, the singer was in the VIP section with three women when he spotted another woman.
One of the witnesses claimed that Burna Boy told Ibrahim to invite the woman to come join him.
However, the lady’s husband was said to have lambasted Burna Boy, insisting that it was disrespectful for any man to make advances at his wife.
After some minutes, Burna Boy was reported to have made fresh advances towards the woman.
This further provoked her husband and his friends who had gathered at the club and the matter soon degenerated.
