Policemen attached to Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu who is better known as Burna Boy, have denied firing shots in Club Cubana, Victoria Island area of Lagos State, on June 8.
Gatekeepers News reports that a UK-based Nigerian lady, Neme Briella had alleged that her partner and his friend were shot by the policemen after she rejected the singer’s advances.
She explained that “one of Burna Boy’s friends walked to talk to me, his request was for Burna Boy to talk to me.
“On the first attempt, I told him I wasn’t interested in talking to Burna Boy and I’m married to my partner. He came the second time, third time and that caused a few of our friends to flare up as they ask why he kept coming to disturb me.”
This, according to her, led to heated confrontations.
“My partner and his friend were shot, with both needing urgent medical care. A bullet grazed my partner’s head and our friend was shot in the thigh, leaving him hospitalized and needing emergency surgery in Nigeria,” the UK-based Nigerian lady narrated had narrated.
The policemen who have been arrested and interrogated over the incident, however, denied firing shots.
“Policemen attached to Burna Boy are under investigation because of the shooting at the club. Detectives have not been able to get the person who pulled the trigger because the policemen denied doing so.
“We have resorted to carrying out ballistic investigation on their rifles, to know if they fired any shot or not. They said they did not fire a shot but we just can’t believe the claim. We need an expert opinion to determine that. The outcome of the result will determine either to exonerate them or to nail them”.
