Lagos State Police Command has reacted after Nigerian singer Daniel Benson, known professionally as BNXN and formerly known as Buju, confirmed that he spat on an officer’s face.
Gatekeepers News earlier reported that the singer who had a face-off with police officer on Wednesday in Ikeja area of the State, took to his Twitter handle to say, “I just spat in a police officer and it felt so good” [sic].
In reaction, the State Police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, said the police officers involved will be sanctioned for their misbehavior.
He also noted that Buju 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.”
