“Four armed robbers carried out the attack and detectives were able to arrest one of their girlfriends who is identified as ‘Matejero’ which led to the capture of the others,” he said.
According to the reports, the robbers who have been apprehended by the police reportedly disclosed that they had been hired by Burna Boy, through his manager,
Joel Kantiock , who was arrested in Zaria, Kaduna state.
The robbers also revealed that they had received a part payment of N50,000 from Burna Boy before the job, and were to receive another N50,000 upon the completion of the job.
The Cable reports that when reached, his manager said, “Burna Boy wasn’t arrested or picked up”. She added that they would be releasing an official statement on the issue soon.
Buki HQ, the public relations company representing the artiste, told TheCable Lifestyle that the singer was invited “nicely” by the police.
“Yes he was invited, but very nicely. There was a letter to that effect, no questioning, no arrest,” Buki HQ told TheCable Lifestyle.
Earlier on Monday, Burna Boy has visited the Lagos police command as requested.
According to the singer’s publicist, Burna Boy was never declared wanted by the police authorities at any time.
“Burnaboy was invited to the Lagos state police command which he has honored. The invitation came today in the early hours of this morning. He was never arrested. When they invite you to the station, you are sitting down in an office and you are not under any arrest or any of those things and he wasn’t declared wanted either,” she explained.
When asked if he was told to visit the station again, Bukky said he wasn’t asked to return.
According to reports, Joel , said to be Burnaboy’s road manager, was the last person to leave Mr 2Kay’s hotel room.
