The singer and five police escorts visited the nightclub around 4 a.m. on June 8, according to a preliminary report by the Bar Beach Police Division.
Four police officers waited outside as one of them, Inspector Ibrahim, who was dressed in mufti, escorted the Grammy-winning performer into the club.
The musician was in the VIP section with three women when he spotted another woman, according to various witness testimony. He allegedly told Ibrahim to invite the woman to come with him.
The lady’s husband, on the other hand, was alleged to have slammed the artist, claiming that any guy making overtures at his wife was disrespectful.
Burna Boy reportedly made new passes at the woman after a few minutes. This upset her spouse even more, as did his buddies at the club.
“As things heated up, Ibrahim pulled out his service weapon and fired multiple shots while Burna Boy laughed,” a senior cop stated.
Lawrence, 27, was shot in the leg during the incident, while his friend Tolu was struck in the head by a bullet. There was a ruckus in the club as a result of this.
Burna Boy and his entourage then drove to one of his houses around the Elegushi end of the Lekki-Epe Expressway before heading to Lekki Phase 1 according to reports.
“After realizing what he’d done, Burna Boy boarded the next flight without even telling the cops. He only communicated with them via video conference to inform them that he had traveled to Spain. “All of his police escorts have been apprehended and are currently being held at the Command headquarters,” a top source in the Lagos State Commissioner of Police’s office claimed.
According to sources close to the victims, police were already attempting to protect Burna Boy due to his celebrity as the victims were being treated for their injuries at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital in Ikeja.
A brother of the victim, named only as Jide, told Sunday Scoop that his brother had undergone surgery to remove the bullet stuck in his thigh.
Irebami, who is based in the United States, arrived in Nigeria a week ago for a wedding, according to Jide.
He also chastised Club Cubana’s administration for not doing enough to prevent the occurrence, claiming that the club had not even contacted the family since the incident.
Attempts to reach Burna Boy’s manager, Mrs Bose Ogulu, who is also his mother, were unsuccessful on Saturday, as she did not respond to calls or texts.
Similarly, on Saturday, Chioma Nwachukwu, a media consultant for Cubana, did not return calls.
However, Benjamin Hundeyin, a spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, stated that the police officers were the focus of the inquiry.
Hundeyin said that no victim had filed a complaint with the police.
