Popular Nigerian musician Buju BNXN will have questions to answer after boasting on Twitter of how he spat on a police officer’s face, police have said.
The musician, real name Daniel Benson, has since deleted the tweet.
Lagos State Police Command reacted to singer, Buju BNXN’s statement that he spat on a police officer during a confrontation.
The singer took to Twitter on Wednesday saying “I just spat in a police officer and it felt so good” [sic].
Reacting, Lagos police command spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, said the police officers involved will be sanctioned for their misbehavior.
He, however, stated that if Buju is guilty on the other hand, he will answer for assaulting an officer.
Hundeyin on Twitter wrote: “@BNXN proudly tweeted that he ‘spat in [sic] a police officer’s face and it felt so good.’
“He has since deleted the tweet. The police officers will be sanctioned for their misbehavior if established, while Buju ‘BNXN’ will surely answer for his assault on a police officer.”
