In a statement signed by ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, Police Public Relations Officer for the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Police Command, Famous-Cole noted that he is “yet to report himself to the police and still on the run.”

Lagos Police noted that was contrary to reports making rounds on the Internet that the musician has honoured police invitation.

“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.”

It would be recalled that three of four suspects arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly robbing an artiste, Abiye Jumbo, aka Mr. 2Kay, have owned up to the crime.

The suspects confessed that they carried out the operation on the orders of Burna Boy.

The suspects are Balogun Ademola, Obina Igwe, Tunmise Omotore and Joel Kantiok, who claimed to be Burna Boy’s road manager.
