Nigerian musician, Burna Boy is said to be on the run following his refusal to honour police invitation sent to him.
The Lagos State Police Command has denied reports making the rounds on the internet that Damini Ogulu, known by stage name Burna Boy has reported to the police for questioning.
Speaking through the command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole said that Burna Boy is yet to report himself to the police and still on the run.
The police spokesman said Samuel Ogulu, Burna Boy’s father, who visited the Investigating Police Officer (IPO) in-charge of the case has promised to produce his son.

“The Lagos state Police Command would like to inform members of the public that Damini Ogulu a.k.a ‘Burna Boy’ is yet to report himself to the police and still on the run contrary to reports making rounds on the internet that the musician has honoured police invitation.
The command would also like to inform the public that only Burna Boy’s father, one Samuel Ogulu visited the Investigating Police Officer (IPO) in-charge of the case with the promise to bring Burna Boy before the police.
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.”
Burna Boy is accused of sending hoodlums who reportedly attacked his fellow musician, Mr 2kay at the Eko Hotel last month.
